Loosing your moko

I think the original idea was a sensible one, but I doubt many would be
willing to risk losing all their data for the rare situation where it
would be a security advantage. 

I think there is something to be said for nifty GPS features. I've lost
my phone... why not SMS it and ask it to email me its location? :)

Security-wise, however, it's a patchy strategy despite how cool it
sounds. It isn't going to stop the physical phone being stolen, but to
what extent can the Moko be encrypted to protect your data?
