Diversity has come at long last to the benighted land of Emojis as Apple released a new set of culturally diverse icons to developers for people to use in texts as humanity slowly loses the ability to communicate in words. They're not available to the public yet, but now that developers have them (as part of the latest OS X update) it can't be that much longer until they're out to everyone. The new set not only includes new icons and faces, there is now a pop-up menu for all the humanoid Emoji people, including Santa, that lets you choose different skin colors. Although the general reaction has been positive that this is finally happening, there's already some criticism that the Asian Emojis are a bit, well, exaggerated in hue.
