Bury me with my BlackBerry, please


“No, don’t recycle my BlackBerry — put it in my coffin with me.”

Noelle Potvin, family service counselor for a funeral home and cemetery in Hollywood, California, is noticing a new trend of tech items being taken to the grave:

“It seems like everyone under 40 who dies takes their cell phone with them. We even had one guy who was buried with his Game Boy.”

This trend has been seen in the United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa, and is now appearing in the states. Does this seem like your thing? What gadgets would you like to be buried with?
