The goal of having an emoji symbol for literally everything is well underway.
The Unicode Consortium recently approved 72 new emoji for inclusion in Unicode 9, set to be released on June 21. New emoji range from expanded smileys and people to new animals, food, and sports.
Noted emoji include rolling on the floor laughing, drooling face, and nauseated face, while the people/body category gains shrug, selfie, and face palm. New animal emoji include gorilla, fox face, deer, shark, and owl, and some of the new foods include avocado, potato, croissant, pancakes, salad, and bacon.

You can still rock the pirate flag on occasion.
On April 1st, 2016, Apple marked its 40th anniversary by flying its pirate flag over its Cupertino headquarters in a tribute to the first-generation Macintosh team headed by company co-founder Steve Jobs.
The flag resembles a stereotypical pirate flag, with the notable difference of a rainbow Apple “eyepatch.” It was originally hoisted by the Mac team in 1983, sewn together by programmer Steve Capps with an emblem painted by graphic designer Susan Kare.
It’s officially “Back to the Future” Day.
And Siri has something to say about it.
Today, October 21st, 2015, is the date Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled to in “Back to the Future Part II”, the movie depicting the future as featuring holograms, weather control, hover boards, flying cars and movie signs that would happily attack you.
You can’t keep a good man down.
Not only is legendary comic creator Berkeley Breathed back, but, after a 25 year respite, he’s brought Bloom County with him thanks to an assortment of Macs on his desk.
And it is nifty.
This actually looks pretty good.
On Wednesday, Universal released the first full-length trailer for the Steve Jobs biopic. The movie, directed by Danny Boyle and penned by Aaron Sorkin, delves into Job’s personal life, his product launches and his struggles regarding his relationship with daughter Lisa Brennan-Jobs.
The trailer also gives more in-depth looks at Jeff Daniels and Kate Winslet, especially, as John Sculley and Joanna Hoffman, with various through-the-years glimpses of Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs. The movie is slated to hit theaters on October 9th.
See, this is why Aaron Paul is nifty.
Paul, the actor best known for his role as “Breaking Bad” character Jesse Pinkman, posted an interesting challenge yesterday via Twitter: ask Siri to divide zero by zero and witness the result.
It only takes a few seconds, but you’ll probably like the result, which is both geeky and funny.
I’m not sure how he did it, but developer Nick Lee managed to get Mac OS 7.5.5 running on his Apple Watch.
The developer started by updating his Apple Watch to the developer version of watchOS 2, and then ported the Mini vMac emulator so it would run on the device.
The icons are really too small to use, the screen is hard to see, but it works. And that’s all that matters.
You probably shouldn’t do this.
Especially not with a US$10,000 Apple Watch Edition, which is insanely expensive.
And made of gold.
The guys at TechRax (the same gents who brought you a video demonstrating what happens if you shoot an iPhone 6 with a handgun) have posted a video demonstrating what happens when an Apple Watch Edition is crushed between two neodymium magnets and 650 pounds of force in the process.
