Apple Wants to Launch 13 New Emojis

Apple is unveils new emojis


Somehow it doesn't seem like rocket science that there are now, but have never been, emojis that represent the largest invisible minority in the world. Emojis have become ubiquitous - we are all relying on them so much more than words. And yet this is a first - welcome though it may be.

It makes the world more inclusive - and who doesn't want to be included? With the absence of text and the reliance on pictures, we are getting further and further away from anything but representational conversation.... a picture IS apparently worth a thousand words!
