On Technological Telepathy

Imagine if computers were smart enough to interpret thoughts, or at least smart enough to transmit or copy thought. Not especially difficult. The machine would understand exactly when you wanted to be reminded, or what the image you wanted to look up was. Now consider the fact that maybe this computer has enough bandwidth to transmit said thoughts to another computer. Furthermore that computer on the other end can replay the thoughts of another back to you. Yes that's right, computer aided telepathy. If this happened you could converse with people using thought. None of this business of trying to master language to attempt to convey ideas. You'd cut out the middle man and talk communicate directly with somebody else. This is a future brought to you by technology.
