Google has made a very small update to Gmail today: phone numbers now appear as links. The search giant launched Gmail calling back in August 2010, so we're a little bit surprised it took the company this long to make this little change.
This better not be as bad as the "feature" in android. I hate it there, because if I accidentally hit any random group of numbers, no matter how long the group is, Android says "oh, that's a phone number", and opens up the dialer and sticks the number in. Annoying as hell.
