We've all done it. Sent that email that we'd like to reach into the Internet void and yank back before it reaches the intended receiver. In case you don't know, if you have Gmail, you can "unsend" a message... but you have to act quickly. What you'll need to do is navigate to "settings" and stroll down until you see "UNDO SEND". From the drop down menu, select the cancellation period. Your options are 5, 10, 20 and 30 seconds. I know that doesn't sound like a lot, but it comes in handy if you hit send by mistake or you've gone off on a rant to your boss and have told him to "take this job and shove it" and then realize you have far too many bills to pay and mouths to feed in this uncertain economy. Next, chose, "SAVE CHANGES" and that's it. When you send your message, a notification will appear advising that your message has been sent. This is the normal message you receive. However, you will see an "UNDO" option, that will remain for cancellation period. Once your time has elapsed, this option will vanish.
It would be nice if we were given more time, perhaps at least five minutes, but for now ....
