New 2019 emoji unveiled, hand pinch emoji steals the show

It’s a sentence that involves 🍆

230 new emoji, approved by the Unicode Consortium, are coming to your phone this year.

The new pack, which seems to highlight inclusivity, includes gems like these two men holding hands and two women holding hands — all with mixed skin tone options!


There are even wheelchairs, hearing aids, and service dogs in the mix.

All these emoji come as great news to a better-represented community.

There is, however, one emoji that was an unexpected hit as soon as the news dropped. This is the hand pinch emoji:

Now, there are a number of instances I could think of that would warrant this emoji:

“Would you want milk in your coffee?”

“Do you find this weather cold?”

*cough* polar vortex *cough*

“Do you even care?”

And though this emoji can also be indicative of size, serving, or amount for a lot of things, most women are thinking of one great big use for it, and the sentence involves 🍆.

Best emoji deterrent to unsolicited d*ck pics

Indeed, these new emoji releases are apt for today’s time. Cheers to the emoji we always wanted but never knew we needed!

You can check out the all the emoji below:

To answer this question, I road tested the Huawei P30 to see just what it can do and how I can use those features in real life.

Remember Meitu? Yes the Chinese selfie phone brand. Also, yes, the same company behind that awesome makeup app MakeUpPlus. Well, they have more stuff coming your way.

Meitu just announced the MeituSpa, an AI cleansing brush that checks your skin quality and uses tech to cater a specific cleansing routine to your face. To work, the device connects to MeituSkin, a corresponding app, to offer users a personalized AI-based spa cleansing experience.


The MeituSpa is compatible with all skin types and offers four different modes: sonic cleansing, deep extraction, nourishing, and warm massage. It uses sonic pulsations with 12 different settings that adjusts according to your skin readings.

“Though Meitu has always been a major provider of beauty services through photo editing, style recommendations, and virtual makeup looks, we are also working to bring Meitu’s brand of beauty out of the virtual world and into the real one,” explains Meitu CEO Xinhong Wu.

The MeituSkin is available in Coral Pink and Aqua Green. Starting April 23, they’ll be available online for CNY 589. Unfortunately, it will only be in mainland China and there’s no news regarding global availability.

Plum is a dating app designed for women who want deeper connections

‘Where respect is rewarded’

Published

Tired (of dating apps)? Lonely? Looking for love — well, at least meaningful connections?

One new dating app will try to redefine the dating app experience.


“Where respect is rewarded” — that’s the tagline forwarded by Plum Dating. The dating app aims to reward respectful behavior by men where things other than just looks are factored in.

The brainchild of Jenna Birch, a dating coach and the author of The Love Gap: A Radical Plan to Win in Life & Love, Plum allows women to rate men they’ve encountered on the app and not the other way around. Also, you can only rate the guy, but only after your date. The scoring system revolves around three core values: Profile authenticity, Communication, and Follow-through. As for men, the higher your rate is, the more visible you’ll be in the app.

In theory, this setup aims to scope out the “nice men” as women navigate a safer dating landscape. Think of it: Women have all the control, including if they want the option to message potential mates first, or the opposite, while men legitly just have to be decent people to score well. As to if it will actually work in real life, we’ll find out this spring, which is when the app is slated to come out.
