Graphics, User Interfaces You probably missed this earth-shattering news, but Ikea IKEA, the Swedish furniture and other assorted home decoration products company, has switched fonts. The company always used the Futura font for its catalogues, but the latest edition has ditched it in favour of Verdana. This has caused quite the stir among typography geeks.

Talk about storm in a teacup. A lot of "experts" talking about things no one really gives a shit about. How about asking the common man if they even noticed or cared?

Serously, where does THAT kind of attitude come from? Of course the "common man" cares about nothing! That doesn't mean we should be living among piles of dogshit. You can take a look at the Soviets as an example. If you'd rather live in a world of grey concrete and similar black coats then shame on you.
