I've tried designs with both lorem ipsum and actual, client provided text. Without fail, the designs that included legible text from the client brought design meetings to a stand still as the client went off-topic for 1/2 hour discussing the textual content. I don't buy the argument that, since typography is integral to design, readable text needs to be included in design mockups. For brochure sites, portfolios, and such, typography may be paramount. For applications or sites with significant complexity and user interaction requirements, its importance should be subordinate to interaction elements anyway. 5:39 pm

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2011-04-01 19:43 from vGW{ - click to read Well, aautclly I can read the answer in the lipsum paragraph. I guess it's harder for non neo-latin born users but I still think that Lorem Ipsum is the best way for text, and it is simply because ANY kind of text you use, before your real copy, is just for merely display. You wan't copy in the first place? You pay more for it. I aautclly think that displaying some incomprensible text in a website draft without real copy is better than generate some other stupid text like the samuel l. jackson lorem ipsum . It could easily drive the attention away from the design, wich, at that time in the process of developing, is really what matter the most. Sorry for my english, I think you should really change this language into something more understandable 7:18 pm

First of all, very nice joke! Definitely one of the better jokes on the web today :)

To those looking for a real opinion about the Arc:

I bought my Arc yesterday, and it's the best phone I've ever owned... Great interface, excellent screen, unbelievably good looking, no lag whatsoever, everything's just perfect - including the price (just 5000 SEK here, which is way cheaper than the competitors). I recommend the Arc to ANYONE who wants a great phone with a large screen.

(No, this isn't an April Fools' joke.)

Hi. I am unfortunately from iran and I do not know what the April fool's joke is at the moment! Please let us read the full review of Xperia Neo too, but in English language. I have a suggestion for you too. Please please please do not write any reviews in arabic or persian or turkish language, or I will put a bullet into my head!!! ONLY ENGLISH.

This review actually has some charts and facts concerning display and speakerphone quality etc rather than merely personal opinions, which actually renders it more useful than Engadget's review.
