Just when I think that Google has thought of everything…they surprise me once again. We’ve all be there, late at night, one, two or 4 glasses of wine and the need to email someone. Who knew the two would go so well together sometimes, but unfortunately they do. You express your deepest feelings to someone and accidentally hit reply all or the next day read something you wish you had never hit sent. Now Google is working to help you with this common problem. Mail Goggles! An application that is activated late at night and weekends and makes you perform simple equations before an email can be sent. Genius! Either you won’t be able to the simple math or you’ll get bored and not send the email.
At first I thought the whole thing was a hoax, a great idea, but not real. Not so, if you have a gmail account you can enable this feature under your settings. Then click on labs and then active the “Goggles” feature. Of course by adding “Goggles” to your email, doesn’t mean you have a drinking problem, but if it prevents one horribly embarrassing email escaping, then it’s done it’s job! I don’t know if they are the same equations each time but if you start to memorize the answers, then you might have a problem.
