    Maybe as a substitute for the real thing we can get a new iMac, Mac mini and Mac Pro emoji.



    🙄

    Thats the ever useful eyeroll emoji because you’re really milking that one.

    Mao said, "Religion is the opiate of the masses".   If he were alive today, he'd say, "Smartphones are the opiate of the masses".  
    I believe you’ll find the quotation is more closely associated with Marx than Mao. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opium_of_the_people
    And, our devices (smartphones, etc.) might indeed be serving in the place of religion for many!

    Your sign-off reminds me when you typed in “Irish” on iOS 10 or earlier it suggested the 4-leaf clover emoji instead of the shamrock. That was the last bug i raised with Apple (with supporting document links) and it was fixed in iOS 11.

    Used to make me squirm on St Patrick’s Day when Facebook would be filled with messages with a quatrefoil instead of a trefoil.

    I am not a cream cheese eater so this bagel looks less appealing to me. HOW IS APPLE GOING TO RECTIFY THIS SITUATION TO PLEASE ME?!?! This must be another change brought about by Angela Arhendts!!

    (just kidding. I don’t eat cream cheese but I also don’t care about emojis to the point I would complain)
    Wtf does Angela have to do w/ emojis???

    I think you may be confused about her job position- she’s in charge of retail: https://www.apple.com/leadership/angela-ahrendts/
    I'm going to assume two things: You didn't read the comments section in the recent AI article about Angela Arhendts and you heavily rely on the sarcasm tag.

    This is all well and good, but I don’t even HAVE the bagel emoji on iOS 12. Maybe it’s not on the UK keyboard?
    FTA: "Apparently bowing to an undercurrent of criticism, the latest beta of iOS 12.1 now features an updated bagel emoji intended to look more appealing."

    Are you on the latest beta of iOS 12.1?

    I've tried complaining about the "taco" that is not a "taco" (how did Taco Bell form become the standard "taco?"
    But they change the bagel emoji?

    =/

    ATP episode 294:
    http://atp.fm/episodes/294

    Show notes: "The abomination that is Apple's take on the bagel emoji."

    Play from 0:30 for a listen. This episode happened two weeks ago... previous to this update. If you listen you may conclude this conversation in particular influenced Apple here. It’ll be interesting to hear John’s take on Apple’s second effort. His uncanny valley comment was enlightening and spot on:

    There's no way a podcast episode from 2 weeks ago initiated this. 
    Disagree.

    I just hope it's lactose-free cream cheese though. LOL
