Stopping Drunk Dialing is a thing of the past: Google looking to stop Drunk Emailing
When totally blasted, things can go so wrong by typing a text you normally wouldn’t or calling an ex that you shouldn’t. Solutions for avoiding such problems are much needed, but Google is working on problems for drunk emailing. Yes, emailing.
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?
Basically, you can enable a few precautions like enabling “Mail Goggles” from 11pm to 5am from Thursday to Fridays (or everyday if you’re an alcoholic) and you’ll be asked a series of math problems before you can hit that send button. Many will enjoy this app, but let’s see this make its way to the iPhone for solving all of man’s drunken mistakes.
