    Default Why has this started appearing everywhere?

    Lorem Ipsum
    This phrase has started appearing everywhere I look over the last few days
    It started on the printer setup page, big capital letters "LOREM IPSUM"
    Today I have seen it three times, the latest on a website about apple mobile devices

    It's just a set text used to display various formatting and font types..

    I fully understand what the phrase is, and what it is normally intended for, having first seen it in 1991
    It is the sudden increase in its appearance I cannot understand

    What, in the middle of conversations and website text?
    I noticed it on an advertising banner yesterday!

    Oh come on, this is getting ridiculous, now seen it at TV footage of the Tennis Queens Club
    I am wondering if there is a company (brand) using it and I am just not getting the point (like the nike adverts of the 90s)

    There was a recent recruitment campaign featuring Lorem Ipsum. The company involved seem awfully pleased with themselves so perhaps they have taken it a stage further?
