Can Technology Make Valentine’s Day Better?
Here at CSi, we’re all really big fans of science fiction and its genre (just don’t ask us about the original Star Trek). As such, it’s always fun to catch up on the latest TV or films that depict how computers, networks, robotics and such are portrayed.
Sometimes, they’re right on point. Although who knew that 1984’s Big Brother would become a possibility thanks to social media? And sometimes, they’re way off. I mean, where are our flying cars already?
One of our favorites is the BBC-turned-Netflix show Black Mirror, where writer/creator Charlie Booker mines the dangers of technology for almost all of the episodes. In an episode called “Playtest,” a game company uses a neural implant to get the full skinny directly from their beta testers’ brains.
The Struggle Is Real
Imagine for a moment, that this type of technology was already possible. What could we do with it? Well, Valentine’s Day is coming up, and let’s be honest, most men struggle to pick up on the subtle hints that the ladies in their lives offer about what they’d like to receive. While we… Well, there’s a reason we so often buy them lingerie, right?
But what if we could insert neural implants in our brains? Instead of relying on subtle clues and dropped hints, we could have our significant other’s wants and desires downloaded into our brains like a Google Drive shared folder!
Taking it one step further… What if you could anticipate what your partner wants for dinner; know what he or she is upset about without playing guessing games? Or give them the perfect date? You could go from dinner through breakfast in bed, without the worries and insecurities that make relationships so challenging.
Something Wrong With the Machinery
In reality, outside of a whole truckload of dating apps, we’re not really any closer to using technology to make our love lives easier. Even those don’t help. Experts say at least one in ten dating profiles is fake. There is a Cyrano (like de Bergerac) app, but it’s just for planning dates and get-togethers; no hints on what to say to make him or her swoon. And this relationship guru has some ways to digitally deepen your love.
As yet, there’s still no truly good site with a diagnostic approach to find the perfect gift, but if you want to go past chocolate and flowers, this site has some more unique ideas for V-Day.
Hmm… Maybe that’s something we’ll work on in our spare time. Until then, we’ll stay focused on giving you the best computer and network solutions for businesses in the Sarasota-Bradenton area. If we can’t give you a better way to love, at least we can offer you peace of mind!
