WTF? Google Felony Service

Michael Froomkin reviews Gmail’s new “custom time” feature, including this zinger (from Google):

Pre-date your messages
You tell us what time you would have wanted your email sent, and we’ll take care of the rest. Need an email to arrive 6 hours ago? No problem.

Uh, last time I looked, that kind of thing was grounds for disbarment in California.

Google adds:

Make them count
Use your custom time stamped messages wisely — each Gmail user gets ten per year.

Ooh, that will help at sentencing time…

PS: Check calendar. Tee hee.
