Google Mail Goggles: Protect yourself from drunk-n-mailing

http://www.time.com/time/business/article/0,8599,1849897,00.html?cnn=yes

Here's the first paragraph:

For a company that's dominated the Internet by doing one simple thing well, Google has also managed to build a thriving side business in bells and whistles: its features offer everything from the ability to search inside books and videos to the ability to watch a kid fall off a bike (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/main.jhtml?xml=/earth/2008/06/20/eastreet120.xml) from the privacy of your own home. So when I heard that Google had unveiled a new feature called Mail Goggles that is designed to stop you from sending embarrassing e-mails while drunk by requiring you to do math problems, my first thought was, That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. My second thought was, I want to try it.

As a purely dissuasive tool, then, Mail Goggles works as advertised. Of course, there's still the text message, the Facebook message and the good old-fashioned drunken phone call. There are plenty of ways to humiliate yourself if you try.

Good stuff.... they didn't include "web forum posting" on that list... lol

They are pretty savvy. When I Googled my ex it brought up a copy of the court order, not her address.:busted:
