    Since we added the Apple logo for the :apple:TV, why not the S⃣ symbol for the new iPhone 3G S⃣?

    Maybe remove the :rolleyes: smilie to keep the symmetry? Since that stupid smilie always causes trouble...

    :D

    *the S⃣ might only be viewable on a Mac, so if you're reading this post and wondering what the hell I'm on about, get on a Mac and view it :D

    The :apple: is applicable to the entire apple product range and is the logo of the company which produces the products this entire website is based upon.

    The iPhone 3G S is only one product and in a years time the iPhone 4G will be released.

    Yeah, alright. I do remember the :apple: being added right after the :apple:TV and the (at the time so-branded) :apple:iPhone was announced. That was in 2007, many years after this website and message board was established, which, I think, diminishes your point somewhat.

    But either way, point taken.

    The point is still valid, those things were/are backup for the decision that was taken at the time and stand as reasons for its continued use.

    The only reason for the ⃣ is that the latest iPhone uses it. Perhaps if it became standard across the entire range of apple computers there would be a reason for adding it. Right now, not so much.

    Why does it need to be added to the smilies when you can just type it yourself? If you want it that bad, then just copy and paste it into your reply.

    No idea...I wonder whether it only works on OS X. Someone want to see if it works in Windows?

    You can type it with the following code S&# 8419 without the space.

    S⃣

    For those in the UK the # symbol is found by alt+3

    You'll have to preview the post before submitting it.

    It only works in Safari on OS X. Nowhere else, as far as I know.

    Read above. That's why.

    I was on your side ravenvii until you suggested we get rid of :rolleyes:.

    I use that too frequently! I have yet to use S⃣ .

    Wait, just kidding, I just used it. Furst!

    It seems to have a very limited application

    Whereas the uses for :rolleyes: are seemingly endless

    Just checked my Windows laptop and it does not display properly on any browser there, even Safari. Just shows some weird 'obj' symbol or has the box appear after the S depending on the browser. Unless Apple uses it more widely amongst their products, which I hope they don't, I don't see any point in adding it to the Smilies.
