The impossible thing software
« on: January 26, 2015, 06:02:09 AM »
The impossible thing in software seems to be independence
Exist a really good free software for generate gifts ?

better is desktop also (without need to connect to internet is not required)

is for generate presents or gifts to another person or yourself .


Give a present.

You control hobbies, anniversary dates and so on.
Even is possible to make a gift card to someone.

A software that automatically orders presents from eBay, gift-wraps and sends them to my friends and relatives, along with a personalized greeting card... I think that would be AI at its best. And pretty scaring indeed.  :'(  ;D

Yes
You want to automate the presents to your mother.

You must control the tastes of your mother in a database.
And the limit you may waste. And so on.

You mean like applying 'The Internet of Things' to a person I may actually care about???

As in: automate the selection and giving of a present to a loved one?

Something like creating a service called: 1-800-CALLMOM?

What a ghastly thought... I hope that idea doesn't ever catch on. :tellme:

Facebook already has this software.

It generates the gift (ad) from our likings, taste, birth date etc., we have provided to it.

So it maintains the database of preference, but keeps it on its server, and creates gifts, but from its sellers. Only sending the gift through drone is due, I think.

Regards,

Anand

So don't have the software, because the condition is independent
and is clearly dependant

Is there any site which publishes the most outrageous obscenities, created inadvertently by their authors' lack of English? If there is, I would happily suggest my top 1 find of many years for their home page.

"You want to automate the presents to your mother.

You must [sic] control the tastes of your mother in a database.
And the limit you may waste. And so on."

My formatting. And my kudos. And let's face it, it's not a language prob to 100 p.c. Simply wonderful. And I very much like the gif idea. Cabaret.

My brother never needed this kind of software.  He figured out what he wanted, then bought it for my father as a Christmas gift.  I remember one year he gave dad an electric razor.  I think dad used it once.  My brother used it the other 364 days of the year.  :)

yeah, I keep finding things I want for me, when looking to buy presents ...
