Have you ever been forwarded an email that you just can't believe? Our inboxes are rife with misinformation. The truth is out there, just not when we actually need it. LazyTruth is a Gmail gadget that surfaces verified truths when you receive common chain emails. It all happens right in your inbox, without requiring you to search anywhere. The result is that it becomes much more convenient for citizens to combat misinformation, rather than acquiesce to its volume. Whether it's political rumors, gift card scams, or phishing attempts, fact is now as convenient as fiction.
