Mail Goggles

We're all familiar with the drunk dial. You have a few too many tequila shots and end up calling that guy or girl you're crushing on or dialing up your ex and begging for forgiveness. With today's technology, the drunk dial has expanded to included drunk texts, Facebooks and chats.

Luckily, Google has come up with a way to eliminate at least one drunken communiqué: the drunk email. With a new Google Lab called Mail Goggles, you can now set your Gmail account to ask you to solve "a few simple math problems" to verify that you're firing on all cylinders before you send a regrettable email on the information superhighway. Brilliant.

You can read more about Mail Goggles on the official Gmail Blog.
