Fading Email

A new email service allows you to send emails that fade away seconds after the recipient opens them. Though I assume, of course, that the NSA will still have a full, permanent record of it all.

Available at fade.li.

Seems like there used to be a service that allowed you to send naughty pictures to people that had a limited lifetime. But someone quickly hacked it to save the pictures.

They fade because why? Is it too difficult to hit the delete key? Or is it just that no one would ever figure out how to hit the Print Screen key? Or am I just too grey-headed to live my life on a smart phone?

Looks like the modern day version of the self-destructing audio tape.

Speaking of weird emails Apple iPhone and Motorola users are reporting a strange email is showing up on their device dated Dec 31,1969. For some it disappears in seconds and for others it refuses to be deleted. The email has no sender and no subject... Hmmmmmmmmmmm

This has no practical use, at best it could be used as a joke, at worst who knows.

Hay! What happened to the message I wrote a few minutes ago?

How does it protect the image? Does it replay every time you re-open the email, or does the email disappear?

KDP: yes, and it fails for the same reason.
