HOUSTON, TX - Something's coming that might completely change the way we look at texting. At least in Apple's new features coming in March. In a push to be more diverse, Apple is adding six different skin shades to their Emoji`s icons.

The change is bringing out mixed reviews from geeks everywhere. Apple is, also, adding children placed in the arms of same sex parents to their Emoji arsenal. In a statement, Apple told us:

"Apple supports and cares deeply about diversity, and is working with the Unicode Consortium to update the standard so that it better represents diversity for all of us.”
