    Yes it's certainly a gyoza dumpling... much more useful than a 'fortune cookie'

    And? Did you expect Apple to hold a press event to say, hey guys we fixed some of our flaws. Thx for coming bye. Bug fixes are never ceremonial. They just put them out quickly and inconspicuously, and everyone goes on using their devices.

    What’s more insane than the emoji craze is the emoji disdain.

    Guess what, Apple has ALWAYS, since the inception of the Macintosh, been guided by making technology more fun for the “mere mortal” (as Steve Jobs called it), and not just a box used to do work. i.e. Photo Booth, iChat, hell even MacPaint.

    I see nothing different from Apple today. They still seem to be making technology more than just productivity boxes, and mere mortals seem to be enjoying it. Steve Jobs mission accomplished.

    Cool, more emoji that people on an older iOS can't see.

    Notice that the 'swearing emoji' used 5 characters and not the commonly used 4 characters. I find this to be a very cute and coy implementation, so typical of Apple.

    I hope Apple release more emojis just to piss people in this thread off.

    My Mom is 77 and loves emoji. She also loves being called kiddie!

    Oh wait, you were trying to be smug and condescending... try again?

    Maybe the snowflakes amongst us need trigger warnings when Unicode adds emoji (and Apple artists update their font file).

    It happens every year, and Apple haters lose their ****

    It’s quite entertaining :D:D:D

    It’s sad when you can’t go to a single kind of news thread without complaints.

    Anyways, cool, more emojis...there’s actually people outside of this small corner of the web who enjoy these little things. hey, beats the sticker craze imo

    Apple fans are passionate, so Mac-centric forums are a magnet for trolls. The ignore function works wonders. :)

    Yeah if I was that bothered by it I wouldn’t even come to the forum. I was just stating how bad it’s become lately. Oh well.

    I dunno, we’ve always used images. Before emoji there were, well, emoticons and this forum is guilty of supporting them for the longest time. Before that MSN had them, before that (or as well as all that) we’ve always used “(-:” and the type “<@:)

    I don’t think much of the arguments against emojis. I think it’s one of the ultimate first world problems to have. I don’t use them much myself, I just prefer text based ones.

    I guess the big thing about them is that they’re universal across all languages. That’s a powerful tool to have.

    But anyways. (also Trump’s very much “idiocrasy”, but I trust with that avatar you’re against him like the rest of us at least :D )

    Grah boooo hissss emojis I don’t understand grrrr.

    I don't really mind emojis, but all should not be called emojis. Broccoli certainly isn't an emotion. These are images or clip-art, and one problem is that they are representations of an idea. They are implemented differently so intent and understanding changes from systems and OS to OS and even between versions. One could call them emoji dialects, and sooner rather than later they will become unintelligible.

    Remember that the "I Love You"-emoji easily will be confused with the "Sign of the Horns"-emoji.

    Emojis are fun. Stop being such grumps, guys. This forum is so bitter about everything.
