New services promise online life after death

(CNN) -- Your husband, an avid gamer and techie, dies of a heart attack, leaving his vast online life *-- one you don't know much about *-- in limbo.
His accounts, to which you don't know the passwords, go idle. His e-mails go unanswered, his online multiplayer games go on without him and bidders on his eBay items don't know why they can't get an answer from the seller.
Web site domains that he has purchased, some of which are now worth hundreds of thousands of dollars,* will expire, and you may never know.

While his will leaves everything to his wife, including all of his digital assets, Toeman realized how difficult it would be for her to access his accounts.
