    I've got Myriad, which apparently isn't the one they use, but is identical. Can't remember where I got it from and if I paid for it - might have come with some software.

    I like apples font. It kind of looks like Arial just with a shadow. And that other ones is kind of ugly. Why would they sell a font for $22? Thats expensive for something so tiny!

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro | LED Cinema Display | iPhone 4 | iPad 2
    While the file is tiny, it takes an awful lot of manual work to design and create a font.
