Apple proposes new set of accessibility emoji for the disabled
Apple has submitted 13 new accessibility emoji to the Unicode Consortium. These emoji try to cover a range of disabilities to better represent the disabled, something the current set of emoji does not.
Among the list of additions are things like Guide Dog with Harness, Person with White Cane, Ear with Hearing Aid, Deaf Sign, Person in Mechanized Wheelchair, Person in Manual Wheelchair, Mechanical or Prosthetic Arm and Leg, and Service Dog with Vest and Leash. The emoji with people in them will be available in male and female as well as in all the racial color options, as with existing emoji set.
Apple is requesting the addition of emoji to better represent individuals with
disabilities. Currently, emoji provide a wide range of options, but may not represent the experiences of those with disabilities.
These are currently just a proposal and will have to be approved by the Unicode Technical Committee for them to be added to the Unicode set. After that they can start rolling out to software platforms, which means we could be a year or two away from actually seeing these on phones and websites.

As an information designer student and professional/graduate, we all can relate to that one professor in university that had way too much on his slides and would read off the slides. This is an ode to that memory in a visual forum with neologism and a gif of a variety of humorous facial expressions that we all felt on our way to learning great concepts, just not in the best way! - #memesdaily
O Google lançou uma nova iniciativa chamada “Google News Initiative”, uma ação que pretende ajudar o jornalismo sério a sair da crise na qual ele se encontra. Dessa forma, o Google pretende, não apenas combater as fake news, mas também encontrar uma forma de auxiliar na captação de mais assinantes de conteúdo online. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Fellow designers understand the frustration and the unspoken rule behind the importance to use suitable fonts. Yet some designers still use comic sans which is a huge no-go. As a designer student I am sharing the faux-pas for typography and design. - #memesdaily
Before becoming professionals in the working field, we all had teachers like Gil where they have encouraged, supported, and surprised his students with profound irony and sarcasm. This meme resonates within the design community because to get where you are now, you would have to go through late nights understanding heavy concepts; almost too self explanatory.
#Google Maps for iOS now tells you how long restaurant wait times are as a new #feature in #version 4.47. It shows the average waiting time for over a million #restaurants , by a graph showing how busy usually during the day. This could be helpful in instances where restaurants don’t take reservations.
New update also includes more information when traveling by #public transit, letting you know which entrance you need to go into. That feature is currently available in New York, Hong Kong, Taipei, Paris, Los Angeles, Delhi, Moscow, Singapore, Madrid, #Barcelona , Kiev, and Budapest, with other cities planned for the future.
ellow designers understand the frustration and the unspoken rule behind the importance to use suitable fonts; so if I slip up and use the wrong one it’s a slap in the face. Most of the time designers like everyone else differ in opinions and that is the worst feeling. So I used sarcasm, a slap in their face. I’m a confident designer and when I choose a font, I know it’s the right one; I placed more than just thought and design, I placed context, psychology of color, patterns, and if it’s a logo design I make sure the font suits the company’s mission statement. - #memestagram
Design principles never change, it’s not like technology but because of new developments of technology and science, concepts of communication and reality of the user experience changes and acquires a new and adaptive understanding and approach to the fundamentals of design practices and principles. - my feelings in the form of a MEME! Hands in the air if you feel this way!

Samsung's Galaxy S9 phones have only been on sale for over a week and some owners are reporting display dead zones. Numerous complaints describe how portions of the screen won't respond to touch input. It's still unclear if this is a widespread issue or one that affects a small batch. A company spokesperson said, "We are looking into a limited number of reports of touchscreen responsiveness issues. We are working with affected customers and investigating. We encourage any customer with questions to contact us directly."
That's a lot of people.
Earlier this month, Spotify revealed that it had begun cracking down on people using hacked versions of apps. These apps allowed users with free accounts to suppress advertising and take advantage of paid features. Now, Spotify has disclosed just how many people have been taking advantage of this hack: around 2 million users.
That's not an insignificant number, and it's understandable why Spotify is cracking down on them. As the company explains in an amended F1 filing with the SEC this week, these users forced the company to adjust its metrics and key performance indicators. The disclosure notes, "Unauthorized access to our Service may cause us to misstate key performance indicators, which once discovered, corrected, and disclosed, could undermine investor confidence in the integrity of our key performance indicators and could cause our stock price to drop significantly." As a result, Spotify has adjusted its monthly active users from 159 million at the end of 2017 to 157 million. Considering the company has filed for a direct listing to go public, these numbers matter more than ever. In an email at the beginning of March, Spotify notified users of hacked apps that they were a risk of having their accounts suspended or terminated if they didn't cease using them immediately. Now, these numbers tell us why the company is concerned.
