This is the second time one of these interns has tried to attribute most of the original Apple emoji set to themselves. (I'm sure some will remember when Willem Van Lancker did it)

Oh well, that sucks. Now I don't know what to believe anymore!
I'm quite surprised that apple haven't updated their emoji yet. They look rather jarring and dated these days.
That's always been a huge gripe with me. They just look like they had less attention given to them. Very msn-esk.
It's one of those moments where 'flat' seems to be the right choice.
Thanks for sharing!
