Yeah ummm that's what find my iPhone is for. And Now it's free. So unless Ben can provide a service that can do more than track your iPhone to within couple feet, remote lock, remote wipe, send special alerts and even custom messages to your iPhone for the finder/thief to see and hear, and do all that for free, I don't see any reason, regardless of method why this would be needed. Let's see what they have to offer. Hopefully it's more than remote data protection.

Well the Facebook page says protecting passwords photos and contacts and such. And the website is talking about people stealing your phone so it must be some sort of remote system. The website makes it very intriguing.
On a side note, if I didn't visit bens site on my iPhone I would swear it was a flash based site. I'm guessing it was JS but whatever it was, combined with HTML 5 for video and audio this is capable of completely erasing flash.
