Cool! I get a blue pickup truck emoji to go with my blue Ford Ranger.


Ah, emojis.. With every new update a flood of emojis is coming. You Apple, you Tim Apple, please be so kind and provide two kinds of iOS/macOS. One for teens and a second one for serious people, like you and me, minimally based on age.

Hey, what about NSFW or Porn emojis? You can increase the sales across the same aged consumers…!
