Turn on the Copiers: bitextender.com cloned

Earlier today I was Skype'd by David Zülke lead developer of Agavi and Managing Director at Bitextender GmbH. We've worked closely together on a few projects,
one being agavi.org's site design/brand and the Bitextender company site. It turns out that some Polish based company copied Bitextender's site, the HTML, CSS,
graphics and all and didn't even bother changing the CSS comments and mailto addresses. The only 'custom' addition they made was adding a language navigation
to the right of the logo. Yuuck..

UPDATE: since David's pushy email, they've taken the site offline. Screenshots FTW!

IKEA abandons Futura for Verdana

This baffling decision has been blazing trails on Twitter and elsewhere on the web over the last week.

Seriously, whoever made this final decision at IKEA should be sacked. I know this sounds reactionary and they obviously thought about it but it's just not logical. I am guessing it wasn't decided by a graphic designer or someone with know-how but rather by some executive who believes he or she is creative.
