YouDeparted is an interesting plot device, but I read about it at TechCrunch, rather than in a novel. The service “provides an encrypted electronic safe deposit box with up to 5GB of space that can be accessed by loved ones in the event of a members death.”
The ensuing discussion is, funnily enough, lively. It includes the following comment.
Hi, I’m one of the founders of youdeparted.com… I like to think of our site as a personal organizer with a death benefit. Beat that, Backpack!
Actually, I made up one of the “quoted” sentences.
