    Apple catches heat for Photoshopping smile on woman's face - Sep. 9, 2015

    I know this wouldn't be a story at all if Twitter didn't provide an outlet for these people to create something so damn stupid.

    I quit society.

    What a wonderful world we live in.

    And why Apple? It was the Adobe guy doing the presentation and adding the smile. Media trolls with too much time on their hands.

    Folks just looking for something to rant about. I don't see how one goes from a demo like that to being offended. If the demo had used a dog, PETA would be pitching a fit. A pet rock may have been safe. Maybe.

    It's a play right out of Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals playbook a certain segment of the political populace plays by.

    They have up'd the ratio of female presenters. Which is cool.

    I cringed at that article and others as well.

    I still think there is room for improvement on overall diversity. Awful lot of white men still IMHO.

    Related: To just say "I'm tired of all this political correctness" stuff discount that historically there has been a lot of opportunity inequality. It really minimizes the efforts to improve. You don't throw the baby out with the bath water.

    So for example we can't just recognize that there are more woman presenting and in key rolls and separately also shake our heads at articles implying Apple thinks women don't smile. It's a weird collision of Apple hating link bate and social justice.

    I'm not one to use the term "political correctness" as much as people use it. I think there is a certain standard that society should uphold when it comes things like this. Adobe in no way demeaned women. This issue in particular is nothing more than good old fashioned nitpicking. Someone being offended at something like this is way out of the realm of political correctness. Society is starting to feel like an episode of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'.

    As a woman, and a damn militant one at that, I wasn't the least bit offended.
    I just wish they'd used Kristen Stewart. I'd love to see how she'd look with a smile.

    This is such a NON story. Things get photoshopped in ads ALL the time. I don't know the percent but I would venture to say it VERY high the amount of print (magazine ads in particular) ads that get photoshopped. This is only a story because a it's Apple and b people are making it a story. It's......





    PS I know Judy is actually talking about something else, but she would think this is ridiculous too!
