I thought this was too random to pass up. I realize many genres of magazine verticals share similar cover strategies however these two popular titles, while they do share some DNA do not generally have anything close to the same cover idea dropping on the same month.
It's uncanny! By the way, why all the bleak predictions in the middle of summer vacation people?
* extra credit * Stop by your local newsstand and check out the Wired cover in person, there is a deliciously subtle deterioration/pixelization effecting the type that has to be seen to be appreciated.
Check out this other random newstand pairing from last year featuring Wired and Wallpaper. Includes a bonus mash up with NYMag!
If that's not enough here is another featuring PC World vs. Macworld.
