Just live long enough and get enough $$$ to become a cyborg and complete the ultimate goal in life, immortality.

Because people don't keep letters in shoeboxes for their relatives to find in the attic anymore. You have a lot of data in your e-mail, maybe Drive, YouTube, etc, and you may want someone to get that data when you die.

You keep a lot of stuff in your fb account that you want passed on to someone else?

"Then you choose how long you want your timeout watch to be. The alert will go out after 1 month of not logging into Google, then the timeout can be triggered at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, or 1 year."
What happens if you die in an accident tomorrow, this weekend or the end of the month or next month. Then what?

At that point, your account and data can be deleted if you wish, or you can set up to 10 people as a "trusted contact" and share certain data with them. You can also set up a Gmail auto-response that will go out to anyone who e-mails you after the timeout period has been triggered.
