Drunken E-Mailing catches by google
Anyone who has spent more than a few minutes over the last couple of weeks trolling technology blogs or cocktail lounges has probably heard about the mail google's GMAIL program that is intended to help stamp out a scourage that few knew existed:DRUNKEN E-MAILING
The experimental program requires any user who enables the function to perform five simple math problem in 60 seconds before sending e-mails between 10 pm and 4 am on weekends .That time frame apparently corresponds to the gap between cocktail NO.1 and cocktail NO.4 when tapping out an E-MAIL messag can seem like the equivalent of bungee jumping without a chord.
MAIL GOOGLE is not the first case of technology developed to keep people from endangering themselves or others with the machinery of daily lief after they have had a few.For years,judge have ordered drunken-driving of fenders to install computerised breath-analysers linked to their car's ignition system to prevent them from starting the vehicle when intoxicated
In interviews with people who confessed to imbibing and typing the same time ,sometimes with regrettable consequences the answer seems to be yes.
