If your best friend just let you down, and find other friend, your computer can replace your friend? Can a computer make what a human friend can do?

Hey, That is a good question, but seeing that most of my friends aren't true friends, I would say a computer could easily replace my friends. But it can't replace my brother, he is a good person as well as a friend. Make sure you have a good day, Happy Lotting!!

You can (and I do) have emotional attachments with your PC, laptop, mobile, or any other electronic device you use.. But you can't replace a human with such things...NO ..NEVER! Humans can think.. and make a choice.. Human can make a choice to help you or not to, to betray you or not to.. Computer can never do it no matter how far the tech goes!

Hi, of course, a computer can t make what a good friend can do. but sometimes, maybe a computer is like a pet dog, is there when you need it.

Well your computer can let you down! It can crash, get a virus, trojan or bug, it can suddenly play up or slow down, it's not entirely trustworthy, so I'd say NO a computer could never take the place of a best human friend, no communication, or one sided communication, if you shout at it or curse it for not doing what it's supposed to do. You can't take your computer to the cinema, go for a meal with it or have a laugh, depending on the sites you use. For some people a computer is a lifeline to the outside world when they find it difficult to meet others or socialize, but it's getting a balance. Communication is what makes the world go round and that is one thing you can't do with your computer, maybe in the future when computers can talk to us but I don't think any of us will be around when and if that happens!
