The posting itself is slashdotted right now, but I'd bet dollars to donuts the requirements include a long list of marketing skills, since that is undoubtedly what this job really is.
You can only remote-wipe the phone if the phone is on a network that allows it to phone home.
If you're trying to smuggle your own data across the border without it being copied by the NSA (as is routine for entry into the US for CBP to confiscate and make an image of your laptop HDD for NSA), swallowing a MicroSD is not so implausible or impractical.

I can work as long as I need to because I love my job and never get tired of it. To me it's just more fun to be had.
Belief in a diety IS mutually exclusive with any kind of scientific integrity. You cannot believe in science and also believe in a diety, because belief in a diety requires abandoning the scientific process.
I don't see how you expect to be taken seriously when you openly admit being delusional.
I also go there frequently, but I used a service to get my visa, and it was effortless. I just had to FedEx my passport to New York, and they had it turned around in a week or so.
First, they don't care if they change it or not. The US can change it or not, and Brazil will maintain reciprocity. Reciprocity is about fairness, not about forcing change.
Second, it does not reduce the number of Americans traveling to Brazil because, believe it or don't, most Americans who have the means to travel don't have trouble meeting the financial criteria to get a visa to the US (which is the chief problem poor foreigners run into when trying to come here).
With this move, they are now beholden to shareholders (i.e. the Venture Capitalists) and profit is the #1 priority, despite the flowery, rainbow-colored unicorn fantasy they are promoting.
I'd bet dollars to donuts that CM is going to become payware and possibly even supported by ads integrated directly into the O/S, with underlying information snooping software that gives them your private info so they can sell it to marketing firms.
So, no, I don't like it one bit.
Brazil has a policy of absolute reciprocity when it comes to immigration. Brazil requires the same of US Residents applying for a Brazilian visa as the US requires of Brazilian Residents applying for a US Visa.
Any requirement imposed upon Brazilian citizens by any other country is reciprocated toward that country's citizens. It makes perfect sense to do it that way.
