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.

As dreadful as it is, there are always bigger priorities in the world, but that mustn't stop us from trying to improve the finer details of living.
(by the way, you're complaining that some people are complaining that … ;) )

Don't waste your time caring about what others care about, you've got much bigger fish to fry! Hurry, the worlds problems need more people to worry about them, and them exclusively!

Personally, I don't care about the best time of knitting needle, although I'm sure some people do. They, in turn, probably couldn't care less about the optimal way to partition a desktop. People care about different, mostly pointless things, which is kinda the point of individuality. We pretty much all care about the major stuff.

If a trivial complaint about typography degrades mankind, then how degraded are we from your trivial complaint about a trivial complaint.

Stop degrading mankind, man!
