Mail Goggles – An End to Drunken Emails?
byWebAlive Team / 08 Oct 2008
Its an interesting notion that Google has now provided a way to help the poor drunken sole from further embarrassing themselves after a big night out. Google’s, Mail Goggles is a new mail verifying system that screens emails before being sent. If the emails are sent during the wee hours of the morning a serious of mathematical questions will be asked to the sender to make sure they are able to answer the questions before the email is sent.
Mail Goggles can be turned on or off within your Gmail profile and can be set to trigger on certain days and times, say Saturday night between the hours of 3 and 5am!
Well I don’t know about you, but what about those users who actually get smarter based on the amount they drink? I know my pool playing skills increase directly with the amount of alcohol I consume, while I recently heard of a friend on holiday in France who’s French skills increased considerably by the amount of drinks he had drunk! And what about the users that simply can’t add up?
So my question is, will these simple mathematical questions really stop the dreaded drunk email?
