Next Tuesday will see the world engage in an orgy of romantic gift-giving and doe-eyed infatuation as loved-up couples make a great display of their mutual tolerance and singleton's attempt to catch the apple of their eye with a cheap high-street greeting card.
V3 has always been a romantic soul so couldn't help but cast its eye over the technology world to do a bit of match-making and suggest some potential dates, or celebrate those already deeply in love.
The course of true love never does run smoothly, but we think we've managed to identify a few matches that could certainly get some hard drives whirring.
10. Microsoft and Nokia's marriage of convenience
While Microsoft may have flirted with HTC and Samsung by letting them have a play with its Windows Phone operating system, it was clear those in Redmond only had eyes for their Nordic counterparts in Finland.
In some ways though, it was a marriage of convenience as both firms had left it rather late to pick their partners for the smartphone ball. Most handset manufacturers were already battling it out to be the one true love of the Android platform.
Still, while Nokia and Microsoft may have been forced into each other's arms, the early signs are good. The operating system seems well-loved by users, Nokia is ramping up its shipments, and the Android love-in is starting to get a little fractious after Google finally fell for Motorola's patent charms.
