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.

There's a difference between caring and blowing a minor matter out of proportions.

I posit the various Vi vs Emacs, KDE vs GNOME, etc. debates that have raged geekosphere.

A bunch of angry tweets, blog posts, a slightly-free guy making a petition on PetitionOnline.com and 5,000+ people signing it, all may seem overblown. But when considered as individual actions (30 seconds to make an angry tweet, a couple of seconds to retweet, 10 mins to write something on a blog, a couple of seconds to sign a petition), it isn't overblown on an individual level.

The overheated posts on those debates are equally stupid.
