Google Goggles May Help You Avoid Drunken Emails

Google has come up with a way to help those who helped themselves to the bottom rethink emails. Still in the testing phase Google Goggles may save your bum in the morning.

We’ve all had a night out and thought about writing that email that we’d never send sober. With Google Goggles you have a better chance at writing your thoughts out and not paying the cost in the morning.

Using simple math problems the tool gives you a short time to prove that you’re on the ball, so to speak. If you can’t solve the problems in time you can’t mail.

You can activate Mail Goggles if you’re a Gmail user by clicking Settings at the top of a GMail page and then going to the Labs section.

Sky News reports:

Writing on a Google blog, Mr Perlow said: “Sometimes I send messages I shouldn’t send. Like the time I told that girl I had a crush on her over text message. Or the time I sent that late night email to my ex-girlfriend that we should get back together.

“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?”

The tool is only on late at night and on the weekends, those times when you’re most likely to spill your heart with a little extra booze boosting your mood.
