This is where interior drollery meets digital technology. The New Yorker has put its entire collection--basically everything published from 1925 to April 2006--on a Hitachi hard drive.
The $299 portable hard drive holds 4,000 copies of the magazine on 80GB. And the drive includes everything, even those incidental drawings of fruit or beach grass. The 3 x 5 drive fits in a purse, the company says, so if you want to debate the finer points of John O'Hara at a friend's house, feel free. Let the muffled scoffing proceed.
