Playboy hard drive digitizes 56 years of stimulating 'reading'

It's going to be a lot harder to hide this from your partner/parents/roommates, but imagine holding years of Playboy magazines in a 2.5-inch portable enclosure.

The Playboy hard drive: because it won't fit on a floppy

It's going to be a lot harder to hide this from your partner/parents/roommates, but imagine holding 56 years of Playboy magazines loaded onto an external hard drive.

That won't mean much to the kid with a hundred gigs of bootleg skinema buried in a system sub-folder, but surely someone remembers analog porn and will appreciate the entire Playboy catalog in a 2.5-inch portable enclosure.

The 250GB, USB 2.0-powered hard drive features an engraved Playboy logo on the side and contains every Playboy magazine starting from the December 1953, issue all the way up to Chelsea Handler's December 2009 cover--more than 650 issues and more than 100,000 pages of fascinating articles to keep you busy over the holiday break.

The hard drive works on any computer with a USB port, but you have to install the Cover to Cover digital reader software to browse and search the content. The 250GB hard drive costs $300, and while competitive drives with 1TB of storage sell for $220, you'll certainly spend more time and money tracking down all 650 original issues.

On the other hand, if you just want to relive a specific decade's worth of airbrushed porn, the publisher also sells a limited-edition collector's box set for $19.95 per decade. And while we're on the subject, you should also check out the FleshDrive, a similar peripheral for the, uh, "choosier" consumer.
