I don't see why people think self-destruction is such a good idea. Not only is it ineffective against hackers (unless the entire device protected by non-wipable firmware or something), and unnecessary with good encryption + password (which will take longer than your lifetime to crack), but anyone (including yourself on say a drunken night) can potentially ruin your data without even physically prying open the computer.
