I wonder how many people in world will raise their hands when I say that a computer with internet connection replicates a very good friend, if not best ones.
There are things in human friends, of-course, but they need too much maintenance! Sometimes the maintenance fees is out of reach for too many people, no matter how they try to keep the motor running things just dont work out, hours and emotions flow like running tap without much return.
Computers are far more trustworthy and reliable in that field, they have minimum maintenance charge and if you enjoy their company they are the best companions 😉
I will any day vote for a computer with internet connection over human companionship. A computer with internet connection, a garden, a dog is my type of life. 😉
human beings are fine as neighbours!
