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.

wow, I'm amazed at the people out there who's "outraged". To them I say, it's just a font, it could look better, it may perhaps not, but it's just a font!"

In the grand scheme of things, who the heck gives a crap? Get back to me when there's something IMPORTANT on the line.

I thought the same thing until I saw that the new font is a Microsoft font. It's funny how quickly I went from "Who cares?" to "What were they thinking using Microsoft crap?". I guess it's all a matter of priorities.
