Gmail Adds Forgotten Attachment Detector

One of the wish-listable email improvements has been officially implemented for Gmail, via Google Labs - a Forgotten Attachment Detector, thanks to Gmail intern Jon Kotker. With Google's expertise in parsing text, it only makes sense that they'd be able to tell when you mention an attachment in the body of an email but forget to attach it. This feature simply puts up a quick alert box when you hit "send" if it thinks a file is missing. Brilliant, and simple; but it makes me wonder why it's something the team "had been experimenting with a few years ago here inside Google but had never launched." Instead, the attachment reminder feature in the third-party Better Gmail script had gotten the job done...
