Google, Allegedly: Snitches Get Stitches

1 Comment and 2 Shares

After a year of protests by its own staff against its work with the military, alleged plans to build a censored Chinese search engine, and handling of sexual harassment allegations against executives, Google is doing some soul-searching and self-reflection over the true meaning of “Don’t be evil.” Just kidding!…

Stopleaks is perfectly fine for many things -- when I worked there, I passed along info I saw about then-unreleased products like Google Home and that game streaming service I can't remember the name of. But when it comes to "products" like military drone surveillance and censored experiences that share user information with an oppressive government, THOSE leakers are HEROES.

Green hair, don’t care: create emoji that look exactly like you on Gboard

1 Comment

There might be thousands of emoji, but for a lot of people, it’s hard to find one that looks and feels like *you*. Today, we’re introducing emoji style Mini stickers for Gboard, designed for those who may have stared into the eyes of emoji and not seen yourself staring back. These sticker versions of the emoji you use every day are customizable so you can make them look just like you. Have a beard and long gray curly hair? No problem. Nose piercing and baseball cap? We gotcha.

Mini sticker styles

Three Mini flavors: Bold, Sweet, and Emoji

Minis use a combination of machine learning and artistry to create illustrated stickers based on your selfie. Mini stickers also come in two other styles: “bold,” for when you might be feeling a little extra, and “sweet,” for when you want a softer touch.

After you take a selfie, emoji Minis use Google’s machine learning algorithms, known as neural networks, to suggest a skin tone, hair style and accessories that you can fine tune. Then, you choose a color for your hair, facial hair or different types of head coverings and eyewear. Add freckles or wrinkles—a little or a lot—if you'd like. Design your Minis so they resemble what you look like in your eyes—or in your mind. 🤗

Emoji stickers

Customizable emoji Minis

With Mini emojis, redheads (and other hair types) won’t just get a single redheaded emoji, but instead a selection of redheaded options, including redheaded zombies 🧟, redheaded mages 🧙 and redheaded shruggies 🤷.


Start stickerising with your new, more YOU emojis! Emoji Minis start rolling out today in all Gboard languages and countries, on both iOS and Android.
