Somebody at MS-Teams decided it might be a good idea to rebrush their emojis.

Not sure if it´s an “older than 35 years problem” [^1] or they´re rly bad. However they add friction to my workflow. They drive me nuts. Hopefully writing about this helps to get them out of my mind :-). Personally I feel they´re way more ugly then the old ones. Even worse: I have the old ones on the iOS app and the new ones on the electron app. I´m constantly reminded.

[^1] older than 35 years:

“I’ve come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:

  1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
  2. Anything that’s invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
  3. Anything invented after you’re thirty-five is against the natural order of things.”
