The emoji controversy that won’t end. Lucas Tamborelli:
So, in the wake of this horrific London stabbing rampage, will Apple do what they obviously believe to be the Right Thing To Do™ and replace their evil knife emoji in iOS with an innocuous plastic spork?
In iOS 10, Apple replaced the handgun emoji with a squirt gun emoji. Microsoft did just the opposite. Nick Statt:
It’s unclear why Microsoft felt the need to replace its old toy gun, which resembled a sci-fi space blaster, with a real firearm. It does, however, put the company at philosophical odds with Apple.
