Emojis Are Not Made The Same
Not all devices are alike. Apple, Android, and Windows, to name a few, are very different operating systems and that key difference also makes for very different variations of emojis. The most popularized Unicode Consortium, or the body that selects which emojis will make their public debut, is the Apple version. They are used in marketing campaigns, commercials, apps, texting, food delivery, etc. However operating systems like iOS, Android, Windows, Blackberry, Samsung, LG, etc. don't always have the same variations of emojis that the general public is accustomed to. This leads to an ultimate dilemma, emojis are basically a language all their own and somehow they are getting lost in digital translation. Thanks to Yahoo tech, a comprised list of varied emojis from device to device: 1. Woman With Bunny Ears You may recognize this emoji normally as the Bunny twins, tap-dancing girls, showgirls, or any of the other various nicknames. However when you transfer over to Android, you'll be in a surprise that the emoji becomes a yellow gumdrop looking face with a brown wig and bunny ears. The dynamic duo is no longer, which probably leads to some confusion at Halloween for Android users who are curious as to when there was an emoji of two Woman With Bunny Ears. 2. Colored Hearts This one is all about design. Apple keeps the hearts very uniform, vibrantly colored, and as basic as can be. For Android, the emojis hold a lot more meaning while also being somewhat cheesy. There is practically no color variation and I don't even know what to think about the fuzzy heart. Emojis are supposed to be playful and I think Android really missed the boat on this one. 3. Watch Obviously iOS looks classier but I am definitely a bigger fan of Android for some reason. I think sometimes less is more and I think it translates well in this instance. After all, a watch is a universal symbol so it's really hard to mess that up between devices. If anything, the emojis from device to device just show a different kind of watch that is solely exclusive to it's own device which seems cool in this example. 4. Eggplant You know exactly what this means if it's sent in iMessage. And you know exactly how hilarious this emoji can be because let's be honest, there is really no everyday use for an eggplant so you might as well spice it up a bit if you know what I'm aiming at. Now as for Android, it's a poor example of an eggplant to begin with but there is no way that it'd ever be used for alternative purposes within messaging. Just no way. 5. Slice of Pizza Okay Android wins on this one. The iOS version looks like a horribly designed emoji that is trying way too hard to be life-like. I appreciate the pic-art look of Android's emoji in this comparison. However, Dominos Pizza is using the iOS emoji in their brand as you can order a pizza now just sending that emoji. After all, that's pretty clever but the pizza emoji could get a generic facelift. 6. Rowboat This is a BIG difference. iOS looks certainly more appropriate and attractive on an interface. The Android immediately signals a date instance which could be totally misconstrued. Also Android needs to keep up with the times as emojis no longer have one option -- with LGBT and racial skin tones being introduced, their emojis need to be updated. Emojis are great because they include everyone and the rowboat needs the same. 7. Glowing Heart Either way, they both accurately depict what you're trying to show. Personally I like the iOS version more however the Android heart isn't horrible. A heart is a heart no matter how you dress it up. Good work to both. 8. Pistol/Gun Windows is the only operating system that doesn't include a gun that looks like iOS. Instead they've opted for a less serious space gun that could easily be more appropriate for Star Trek than anything else. With weapon emojis being taken more and more serious in the media, Windows will have to figure out how to not cause any trouble for its users who may be using their version of the gun emoji playfully while it will be translated into a more serious message. 9. Love Hotel Well to be honest, I've thought the 'H' on iOS stood for hospital and the heart symboled health. Apparently that's the exact opposite of what it meant. Windows does a much better job at representing this but they are both confusing. It wouldn't have killed them to spell out "hotel" on the building, you know. 10. Mobile Phone We get it, you love your own phone. 11. Donut Hmmm these are all very stereotypical of the interface they appear on. To be honest, Windows looks the least like a donut and I personally am not a fan. Android does a pretty good job and iOS is the most life like. I guess this one boils down to pure preference but it should be understood between each device fairly easily. I guess Windows doesn't like chocolate frosting. 12. Alien Monster Well these have very different connotations from the get-go. For iOS, most believe this emoji is a representation of an arcade game that you use with a joystick. For Android, however, it's actually alien monster that looks like an evil version of Pearl from Finding Nemo creepily ready to say "Awww you guys made me ink muhahahahahha!". We have an alien emoji already in iOS, why do we need this one? 13. Tennis Either way, they fit the bill and do a nice job at symbolizing. 10 for 10 on both.
K-Idols with tattoos pt. 1
So I know in South Korea tattoos are still somewhat taboo and a very sensitive subject but as a girl with tattoos this is a topic I'm very passionate about. As I stated I have 3 tattoos so obviously I'm all for them. I don't like how they have such a bad stigma because now a days they're a form of expression and they're art. They're a form of strength, encouragement, reminders and memorials. So I kinda wanted to do a card all about k-idols (the ones I could find anyway) who went against the grain and got tattoos despite the way they're viewed. #1 Winner's Mino Meaning: "then the LORD your God will restore your fortunes and have compassion on you and gather you again from all the nations where he scattered you." I don't know the meaning of the one on his back. #2 Topp Dogg's Jenissi. Meaning: Left arm says Stop And Play and his right arm says Let Me Hit That (xD oh Jenissi) #3 Jay Park Meaning: Music, family, crew and his morals. #4 Teen Top's CAP #5 BigBang's GD Meaning: Vita Dolce means beautiful and sweet life, Moderato is a musical term meaning moderate tempo in Italian. The one on his shoulder is from one of his songs the others are unknown. #6 JYJ's JaeJoong Meaning: upper back means "The pleasure of the mighty are the tears of the poor", "hope to the end" and "a song will outlive all sermons in the memory". #7 Block B's Zico Meaning: right side of chest "John the apostle" and a portrait of his mom when she was younger on the right side of his chest #8 BAP's Bang Yongguk Meaning: left shoulder "Do what you like and luv what you do" forearm "make art not war" #9 BigBang's Taeyang Meaning: His faith, Jesus' death and resurrection across his back and a cross along his side. #10 FTISLAND's Lee Hongki Meaning: back of arms freedom, forearms skeletons and keys on shoulder. #11 Beast's Junhyung Meaning: "seize the day, put no trust in tomorrow" right forearm, "if I die tomorrow I would never regret" upper left arm and "born again still your son" right chest #12 Block B's Taeil Meaning: "777" symbols good fortune, 2 dice, MVP and LUCKY #13 BTOB's Changsub Meaning: "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God." (Isaiah 41:10) "Do not be defeated from yourself" #14 BTOB's Ilhoon Meaning: "No one can be like God" #15 WINNER's Tae Hyun Meaning: tattoo on his right arm is the name of the artist, bat, a banana and STAY GOLD. #16 BTOB's Lim Hyunsik #17 Brown Eyed Girls Miryo #18 SISTAR's Hyorin #19 BoA
2021년부터 커피숍 테이크아웃 시 종이컵도 돈 받는다
반납할 경우 금액을 되돌려 받는 '컵 보증금제' 호텔 어메니티가 점차 사라지는 등 전 세계적으로 플라스틱 및 일회용품 규제가 강화되면서, 2021년부터는 커피전문점을 이용하는 고객들이 테이크아웃 잔을 요청할 경우 별도의 컵 값을 지불해야 한다. 다만 사용한 컵을 반납할 경우 지불 금액을 되돌려 받는 ‘컵 보증금제’가 함께 도입될 예정. 더불어 2022년에는 종이나 나무 재질이 아닌 빨대나 젓는 막대까지 사용할 수 없게 된다. 하지만 이는 비단 커피전문점의 일만은 아니다. 현재 슈퍼마켓에서만 적용 중인 ‘비닐봉지 사용 금지’는 2022년부터 편의점과 제과점으로 확대되며, 1회 용품 사용이 빈번한 장례식장에서도 일회용 제품 사용의 제한이 가해진다. 또한 2021년부터는 배달음식에 1회용 수저가 사라지고 값을 지불해야만 제공받을 수 있게 되기도. 이로써 정부는 이를 통해 1회 용품 감축 효과를 2022년에는 40%, 2030년에는 60% 이상 감축될 것으로 전망하고 있다. 대다수의 시민들이 환경보호라는 대의에는 동의하지만, 과연 실제 제도화되는 데에는 우려가 깊어지는 가운데 과연 어떻게 실행될지 추후 귀추를 주목해보자. 더 자세한 내용은 <아이즈매거진> 링크에서
