We've all heard the ol' axiom: Don't drink and dial.
Google is taking that a step further by looking out for your drunk a-- in the digital age with a new feature called Mail Goggles. It's like a little Gmail angel on your shoulder asking: Do you really want to proclaim your undying love for the boss' 17-year-old daughter? Or tell the world about your extra nipple?
Mail Goggles, which is only effective late at night and on weekends, kinda like me, requires you to answer five relatively easy math problems in 60 seconds before your Jerry Maguire manifesto is thrust onto the interwebs.
If you can't do the math, you can't do the e-mail. (Hey, you activated the program! Don't blame us!!)
Critics have already pointed out flaws. Mail Goggles is not available on Gmail for cell phones. And that's how most desperate and drunken messages are sent.
But we can't expect Google to save us from ourselves 24 hours a day. Can we?
