What a year it’s been for emoji in general. Some of the press has been good, and some of it not so good.
About that emoji movie… Uh yeah, it’s like it never happened or shouldn’t have happened.
And as for the Emogenius Game Show, it’s creeping right along into the late night spot as each week passes, having launched at the 8PM CST, now 11 PM CST, and likely to be cancelled who be not too far on the horizon.

It’s a while since I had a moment to post about emoji domains nearing auction end.
I’ve been quite busy with a few other projects, plus my oldest recently started soccer.

As I headed home from the office to visit my wife and kiddos before their nap time, I checked Twitter to see a post from Konstantinos Zournas (@onlinedomaincom), owner and operator of OnlineDomain.com.

I’m not certain of the outcome of the ✎.ws (the lower-right pencil pictograph) domain.
