There goes that last frontier of decency. Or did it? I could almost buy into this being at worst an unfortunate necessity, when friends and loved ones are ill or abroad. That is, until I watched the official sales pitch.

That's right, you can use the funeral webcast as a way to actively exclude those you don't like from the ceremony! You can also set a password, which is great for keeping out funereal voyeurs (if those exist?), but also, you know, that cousin with the lazy eye that owes everybody money. It also suggests that you watch the funeral from the library, which is just come on already. If you're trying to sell me on live funeral webcasting, Chris Hill, at least do it with a little dignity and tact. [Funeral Resources via Consumerist]
