Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

So what do you want to happen to your data when you die?

You're going to die someday. Deal with it. And the nice folks at Google want to help you plan for taking care of your poor bereaved data.

Google has announced a new feature called the Inactive Account Manager that will allow you to

choose to have your data deleted — after three, six, nine or 12 months of inactivity. Or you can select trusted contacts to receive data from some or all of the following services: +1s; Blogger; Contacts and Circles; Drive; Gmail; Google+ Profiles, Pages and Streams; Picasa Web Albums; Google Voice and YouTube.

So you can sleep better knowing your data will be taken care of after you pass on.
