Drunk emailing

If you’re not following Ari Melber’s twitter feed you should. His political insights from inside the Obama plane are really worth reading. He has a great insight on the race being right in the middle of everything, however, once in a while, he’ll throw in a non-political tweet.

This one is from the wonderful people behind gmail.

Like Virgin Mobile which in some markets has features that prevent drunk dialing, the good people at Google now have a device on their email which prevents drunk emailing. Starting late night Fridays, Gmail activates this feature just to make sure you are 100 percent sure you want to send that email. Once you click send, Google presents you with a pop quiz asking you basic math questions. If you’re a little drunk, you may have some problems answering the question, miss a few and lucky you, you didn’t send that drunken love letter to the ex telling her that even though you’ve “moved on,” you love her and want her back.
