Have you ever sent an email you later regretted? You know, that late night rant to your boss, or the teary plea to reunite with your ex?
Google, the folks who are always looking out for us, have come up with a solution to stop drunk emailing. No, it’s not a breathalyzer to keep you from sending email when your blood alcohol level exceeds the legal limit. Instead, it is a CAPTCHA-style feature that requires you to solve a series of simple math problems before you can send an email.
OK, I know what you are thinking. Those guys in Mountain View come up with some pretty wacky hoaxes. But it’s not April Fool’s Day. Log in to your Gmail account and click on ‘Settings’ then ‘Labs.’ Enable ‘Email Goggles’ then go to ‘Settings’ then ‘General’ to customize your settings. You can choose the days of the week and times of day to activate the feature.
The dignity you save may be your own.
