Your mission, should you choose to accept it, involves sending an email that destroys itself after the recipient reads it. This message will self-destruct.

That’s not just a line from Mission Impossible. A Chrome extension called mxHero Toolbox actually makes self-destructing emails a possibility. By enabling a feature before sending an email, you’ll ensure that the message alerts you when it’s read and then deletes itself after five minutes.

Though that’s cool on it’s own, it isn’t the only thing you can do with mxHero Toolbox. Want to see who clinks the links you post in your emails? Try it out. Want to write an email now, but send it later? mxHero can help. It even helps you hide recipients’ addresses from each other and alerts you if your message isn’t responded to.

Give this extension a try. If you like it, share it with your friends on Facebook, or better yet, email them a self-destructing link.

    Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

    Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.
