  • Gmail Goggles: No More Drunk Emailing on Friday Nights

    I'm laughing at mail goggles, but do agree, that even though I don't drink, sometimes when I'm angry, I need some sort of goggles to keep me from flaming and sending a bad email!!

    This new feature from google labs is something you can enable on your gmail account – at certain times of day it will check your reflexes and if your'e a little slow, it won't let you send the email but will save it for later.

    I find this interesting and funny but the truth is that when we talk to a person who is inebriated, we know not to take what they say seriously — there is no such thing on email — you cannot see their state of mind. Isn't this why emoticons evolved?
