    The hijab emoji is so empowering, but what's up with the missing burqa emoji?

    Sure it makes sense, because it's politically motivated. The personal politics of the people running Apple have trickled down to influencing emoji's, for heaven's sakes. :rolleyes:

    Neither are the people who write software for Apple. Just look at the state of all their software.

    I don't know anyone who uses emojis. Granted I'm over 20, but still, most people in my circle use iMessages, I'm just not sure I've ever seen an emoji used in it.

    It's where you treat a "racialized person" with absolute respect and kindness, you completely ignore all racial issues, treat them as you'd want to be treated.

    And they treat you like you're a racist jerk because clearly the only reason you were so nice is because of their race, so you treated them differently, so you're racist.

    I want a firefly emoji. Both the TV show and the actual lightning bug insect. (actually, it's technically a beetle)

    Woohoo more emoji's, but still no dark mode. I'm glad Apple is prioritizing their R&D budget. I know I know, Apple w ill make a TON more money off of the kids who want the new emoji's versus the few old guys like me what want a dark mode.

    Well, *ahem*

    I believe the eggplant / 3 water droplet emoji combination is the accepted method for conveying that action...

    Cars, knives, bats, etc. have been used to kill people. I hope you are just joking and not actually using that as an argument to remove a gun emoji.

    technically anything can be used to kill someone.... so removing the gun didnt solve anything, it was just a social justice move....nothing more..nothing less...

    In 2017 we have the CEO of one of the most respected and profitable companies that has enough money to buy entire nations tweeting about adding a few more emoji's to their products? Seriously? Now, I really do think Tim Cook has done some great things with Apple. But this emoji thing though takes it a bit too far. I do not understand this fascination with emoji's. Please someone explain this to me.

    Having bought all Apple products including the Apple Watch recently, I just have more questions about Apple these days than answers.

    <rant>
    Where is the innovation? Why does Mac OS have so little new features? Where is Mac OS headed? Why can't I still get a good USB-C IPS monitor without paying a TON? Where are the Apple displays? Where is the iPhone 8? Why can't my Watch do what Alexa can? Why is Siri so far behind? Why are there so few HomeKit devices? Why is HomeKit not compatible with Harmony when Amazon's Echo IS SOLD with one? What is replacing Time Capsule (I do not want a cloud solution for speed/privacy reasons)? Why is iCloud so expensive when compared to other offerings by Google etc.?

    What is Apple doing better than Google or Microsoft or Amazon these days? Where are the new product launches? Where's the car? Why hasn't Siri taken over the world? AR is totally useless to most of us, maybe except gaming and other businesses like real-estate.
    </rant>

    Where is Apple going to be in the next three years 2020?

    Private why, exactly? It's a basic part of life that people in most of the world don't make any kind of scene over. Is the hungry baby somehow inconveniencing your enjoyment of your own canapés? As which price point do you believe you warrant a room devoid of these distractions that you could easily just ignore. No one is compelling anyone to look at some unknown woman's chest, so it would be just as effective to just tend to your own table and be glad the baby isn't crying, right?
