iTunes: now it’s making graphic designers redundant

What else could explain the sheer half-arsedness of these album covers, from Sugababes and Girls Aloud respectively?

Presumably the record industry has thought “hmmm, everybody downloads or rips now, so covers don’t matter. Let’s sack all the designers!”

Future pop album covers won’t have images at all. They’ll  just say “Fuck you, Steve Jobs” in brightly coloured letters.
