GMail Goggles

This is an interesting and funny feature in gmail (labs). It is for those who send un-intended emails when they are drunk and then regret later.

Once enabled, this feature will ask the user to solve few simple mathematics problems and will send the email only if the user manages to answer them correctly ;) It is not surprising this feature is enabled by default only on friday nights -- when the probability of this mistake is high enough. These timings are configurable.

You can enable this in gmail : Settings -> Labs -> Mail Goggles

Not sure about how useful/effective it is, but it is a "cool" thought.

More info here in the offical gmail blog.
