Afraid of losing valuable information if someone were to grab your phone or mobile device? A company called Synchronica has a new application called Mobile Manager that can ease your fears. With it you can remotely lock your device and wipe any data on it if someone does steal it. But that’s not where the fun ends. You can also activate a terribly annoying screaming alarm which can’t be turned off by the person who has the phone. They would be forced to either remove the battery or to destroy the device. It’s not like you were ever going to see the device again anyway, so that would serve the thief right.
This sounds like a solid solution for theft, and a way to get a bit of sadistic pleasure out of an annoying situation. There’s a problem, though. The company hasn’t released a commercial version of the software. It’s part of a larger mobile management software package, and a license costs about $1,530 for 5 users.
