Awesome, awesome stuff!!!
Gmail introduces 5-second rule to "unsend" e-mail - rejoice!
"I forget to attach a file, or e-mail the birthday girl that I can't make her surprise party. I can rush to close my browser or unplug the Internet -- but Gmail almost always wins that race."
Leggett added that he's had "Undo Send" turned on for a while "and it's saved me several times."
"Someone joked that it would be a great feature of Gmail to keep you from checking e-mail," Davidson said.
So he created a program that locks people out of their Gmail accounts for a set period of time. After spending two afternoons coding it, Davidson launched the "E-mail Addict" feature, which forces users to take a break from e-mailing by blocking Gmail for 15 minutes.
This may cause a wave of hesitation-habits, but at least the option is there And...why did it take this long to get the "5-second rule undo-send" feature?
