Remember when domineering relatives would sneer at both your wrapping and penmanship when you gave them a gift? Thanks to moveable type, such humiliations are a thing of the past, but perhaps there's a better way to win your pedantic folks' love. Bond, for instance, is launching an iOS app that sends gifts with beautifully handwritten notes in the package. The only difference is that Giles the Bond Robot is doing the hard work for you. The company hopes that Giles will bring some of the real warmth and human contact back into choosing nice items for your loved ones, just in the same way that we expect our robotic bartenders to listen to our every problem and offer sage advice.
