You know mankind has descended by a level or two when they purchase a digital lover. Technology can never replace the human touch, no matter how much Nokia wants you to believe that. The $38 Virtual Girlfriend/Boyfriend device is a spin from the Tamagotchi craze, offering you a chance to date 8 different portable companions on-the-go without the worry of diseases and unwanted pregnancies. Each of the 8 virtual characters come with their very one personality, and depending on the way you swing, these will make a refreshing but pointless purchase.
