StealthText is a new service in the UK that allows you to send messages that will be deleted from the recipient's cellphone after they've read it, to address that nagging problem of all your top-secret SMS messages falling into enemy hands. Your urgent nefarious texts will self-destruct within 40 seconds of being read. Mind you, if you really do have a need to traffic in sensitive information, we can't really advocate SMS as the most secure channel — then again, criminals don't seem to be known for their smarts these days.
