Gmail "Mail Goggles" To Help You Avoid Sending Mail [voices.washingtonpost.com]You Later Regret
Google's e-mail service Gmail just introduced an unusual new feature, called "Mail Goggles," designed to help keep people from sending emails that they'll later regret.

That's right, the new email feature is an effort to help keep people from emailing after they've had a drink or two too many. Turn this new widget on and Gmail will make you perform a few simple math problems, within a short time limit, before you can hit "send" on that outgoing e-mail. When activated, the service acts as your e-mail traffic cop on Friday and Saturday nights between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m.To turn this feature on, look under your Gmail account's "settings" button, then click on the "labs" option and scroll down the page.

Damn! I've always thought it would be good to invent a USB breathalyzer to prevent you from logging on to your computer when intoxicated.

Google's foiled my plans again! :)

...not so great if you're crap at maths though, because you'd never be able to send another email again
