Google launches Gmail Custom Time

Are you always forgetting Birthdays and missing deadlines at work? Well don't fret, help is at hand. Gmail has launched Google Gmail Custom Time. It's an amazing idea. Users can send emails with a custom date in the past, putting it in the recipients inbox at the old date. You can opt for it to show up read or unread by selecting the appropriate option.

So now you can send Birthday greetings to your Mum for 2005 and bamboozle your boss by saying that you sent him that report you forgot to do before Christmas! Unfortunately you can only send emails back until April 1, 2004, the day that Gmail was launched.

Gmail have also limited the each user to just ten pre-dated emails per year, so you'll have to choose carefully. The fear is that an unlimited supply of custom time emails would cause people to lose faith in the accuracy of time making the feature useless.

Google Gmail Custom Time
looks set to change the nature of modern communication for ever.
