This post from another blog is talking about the font Comic Sans, and that it is a “horrible font”. I personally don’t think it really is that bad, but I don’t use it often. As the author correctly points out, it looks like bad handwriting yet is used for things like company logos.
The font is included in Microsoft Word and a lot of other word processing programs (in non-techy language: basically a program on your computer that you type on and print), along with a lot of other fonts. What I am wondering is why complain about this font? I mean, there are a lot of fonts out there, and a lot of them are quite horrible and you would never see me use them. Out of all the fonts in Word 2010, this wouldn’t be at the bottom of the list.
What do you think about the font Comic Sans? Do you like it, hate it, or in-between? Do you ever use it? Discuss in the comments, and don’t forget to like the post.
I have never been a fan of Comic Sans, but it was not until today that I found that there was an entire web-based movement to eliminate its improper use. Sites such as Ban Comic Sans and Comic Sans Criminal are determined to dissuade people from using the simply horrible font, and rightly so.

First of all, let me get this fact straight. I don’t actually use either of these services. I know that makes I really good review for each of them (not!), but the reason I don’t use them is because none of them are quite as good as the service I use – Windows Live Hotmail (www.hotmail.com). In my opinion. Now, on with the comparison…
MobileMe Mail is part of the Apple MobileMe suite of internet applications (the service was originally called iTools, then named .Mac – dot mac).
It costs!! Different prices for family and single accounts
Free trial version available
20GB (at the time of writing) combined storage for docs, photos, email etc.
Works really well with Apple Macs, iPhones, and iPads
As I said earlier, I much prefer Windows Live Hotmail out of all the email services. But out of these two… well, they both have their own good things and bad things. However, I think Yahoo! Mail just wins. Is it worth getting the Plus version for use with desktop email apps? It depends whether you use them or not. Bear in mind the free version may not work with phone email apps. Happy emailing!
