If another sequel to "Mission Impossible" makes its way to the big screen, Tom Cruise may receive his assignment via a text message. That's because a new text messaging service promises the digital communication will self-destruct in 40 seconds.

I suspect that drug dealers and terrorists will be the majority market for a product like this!
