I Second that Emoji


Talk about feature bloat — wait until you see the latest from Microsoft:

The U.S. tech giant will include support for a middle finger emoji on the Windows 10 operating system for mobile and desktop computers when it is released later this year, according to emoji website Emojipedia.

This means Microsoft could beat both Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS to become the first to include the rude gesture in its range of emoji—symbols used in electronic messages. And to ensure diversity when giving someone the finger, Microsoft’s emoji comes in different skin tones.

As a former user of FrontPage 97, I can tell you with authority that Microsoft has been giving users the finger for years and years.
