Sometimes, a new product comes along that’s so monumentally stupid you wonder what they were smoking. Distributing albums on…. Micro SD cards? They expect people to build libraries of albums about two centimetres square? This is a a complete misreading (and misunderstanding) of the market. The attachment (now fading) people have to ‘thing value’ is entirely valid for treasured vinyl or even CD jewel boxes, but the market’s now educated into iTunes and the hard disk is now the storage media that matters.
The only plus point here is that the inevitable IKEA storage rack won’t take up much space in your living room. Let’s hope the Stones don’t re-release ‘Sticky Fingers’ on this format though, because they’ll have a hell of a time finding zips small enough to put on the cover.
