New in Labs: Stop sending mail you later regret
Monday, October 06, 2008 6:25 PM
Posted by Jon Perlow, Gmail engineer

Sometimes I send messages I shouldn't send. Like the time I told that girl I had a crush on her over text message. Or the time I sent that late night email to my ex-girlfriend that we should get back together. Gmail can't always prevent you from sending messages you might later regret, but today we're launching a new Labs feature I wrote called Mail Goggles which may help.

When you enable Mail Goggles, it will check that you're really sure you want to send that late night Friday email. And what better way to check than by making you solve a few simple math problems after you click send to verify you're in the right state of mind?
Interesting and it is available. I'm not a drinker, maybe that is why I thought this is a joke.

That's pretty funny, and I can see the utility in it. I am not a drinker, either, but from time to time we all stay up too late or type things perhaps we should not have.

isnt the point if drinking to do things you wouldnt normally do?

like telling that girl you've had a crush on for ages but never done cos youre too scared?
