There are few things in life more annoying than those Smiley Central flash ads that go “helloooo” and “omg! no way!” when you mouse over them. Especially when your speakers are up and the rest of the office laughs at you. We’ve all been there.
That’s why I’m saddened that my beloved GMail, despite being revamped on mobile this morning, has just added support for emoticons. Seriously? Seriously. Now, those of you who were confused about what “:)” means will get a happy yellow face to explain. There’s also one that looks alarmingly like surprise buttsecks. Worrying.
