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.

The problem with that argument is that car companies are competing with each other constantly, so they are constantly trying to out-do each other.

Are font families or authorized resellers doing any sort of competition? If they are, it's not anywhere near the scale of the car industry. (Have you heard of the "font industry"?)
