I don't subscribe or even read Playboy, but I gotta say that for $300, that is a pretty good deal considering its the archive of all Playboy magazines since its inception.

I wonder how hard it is to create an image of that hard drive. I'd be pissed if I bought that only to have it fail.

Wow, that's actually pretty cool. I'm not a big Playboy fan, but throughout the years they've had some pretty good articles in there. The photos, well, that's not my cup of tea. I'm more of a Hustler fan myself, Playboy and Penthouse were always too tame for my tastes.

But, $300 for all of the articles they've done, the interviews, etc., that's a really great price. Plus, you get it on a hard drive, you don't have to download anything, you don't have to take up your own drive space. It's a deal and a half.

It is a vey interesting way to distribute media. I think it would be some 30 odd DVD's. I would think that the MTBF would ensure that it would last a pretty long time since you would only have the drive connected to your PC when browsing it. I haven't seen media distributed in this manner before... Very interesting.

There are quite a few issues that are not available for any price let alone $300. Besides if you could buy 56 years worth of real issues you would probably run into a storage problem!

Dragon Magazine, MAD and National Geographic have all released their "complete run" on CD rom for $100+ in the past. Playboy selling everything on a single plug-in drive certainly simplifies matters.

I know Dragon and MAD ran into copyright issues, since they hadn't purchased electronic rights for *any* of their older material. Things got pretty nasty before a settlement was reached. Not sure what Playboy's arrangements are, but one would think they've learned from those earlier court cases.
