Google Xistence: We wish it was real

Google Xistence: We wish it was real

Google KnowsGoogle is purportedly offering a new service called Google Xistence, which will allow Google to live your online life for you while you spend your time playing World of Warcraft.

Or at least this is the vision of a prankster with a very sharp wit. The service, hyped on this very Google-like page (probably shouldn’t enter your login information), says you can pair your existing web apps like Twitter and Facebook with the fictional service and it will dynamically generate wall posts, tweets, photo uploads, status updates and video posts.

The service even sends weekly emailed status updates, so you know what’s going on in your life, just in case someone wants to know what you’ve been up to. That’s on the off chance that you feel like having a social life after starting to use the service, because as the tagline says, “life’s too short for social interaction.

The site even includes a link to the “googlabs” Twitter, which explains that the fictional service is so advanced that it automatically unfollows other Xistence users’ Twitter accounts so that the service doesn’t end up having a conversation with itself.

This prank appears to be the work of Philipp Droessler, an Austrian web designer. We wish it was real, though.
