…Playboy wants you to read Cover to Cover?

Playboy Cover To Cover Archive

Since Marilyn Monroe appeared on the first cover in 1953, Playboy has published more than 650 issues containing more than 100,000 pages. You’d need to sacrifice a whole forest of trees to print each of those issues again though, so Playboy has kindly created the Cover to Cover Archive Hard Drive, a ‘travel-friendly’ 250GB drive that contains every issue ever printed from 1953 to 2010.

…It’s Things Thursday: 48 Hour Magazine?

48 Hour Magazine

The 48 Hour Magazine was “a raucous experiment in using new tools to erase media’s old limits. As the name suggests, we’re going to write, photograph, illustrate, design, edit, and ship a magazine in two days.”

The first issue, titled Hustle, received more than 1,500 submissions, which two dozen editors then trimmed down to the final 70 selections.

If you’d like to see what a unique idea, a handful of volunteers and a weekend’s worth of hustle can produce, then head on over and order up a copy.

…T-Post lets you play Rock, Paper, Scissors with your t-shirt?

Rock Paper Scissors T-Shirt

T-Post is a monthly magazine that gets delivered as a t-shirt, with the news story on the inside, and an artist’s interpretation of that new story on the outside.

This month, they’re talking about Higher Education, and Marc Stromberg’s t-shirt design includes an augmented reality tag that allows you to play Rock, Paper, Scissors with a hand that comes out of your chest when you sit in front of a webcam.

Don’t believe me? Check it out:

Now I’m not quite ready to call Augmented Reality clothing a trend, but with the Adidas AR Game Pack and now a shirt that plays Rock, Paper, Scissors, the world of fashion is quickly becoming a world where things aren’t always as they appear.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Playboy Archive?

Playboy Archive

Believe it or not, Playboy has put 53 of their classic issues online for FREE for you to browse through.

The site uses Bondi’s new web viewer, so the whole experience is rather fluid, and the available magazines span the range from classic to current, so you can see how Playboy has changed over the years.

…Time magazine wants to make you Mine?

Mine Magazine

To combat dropping subscription numbers, Time Inc. has created Mine magazine, a magazine that’s created especially for you.

To make one, just pick from up to eight of their magazines, answer a few ‘seemingly random’ questions, and then in two weeks, the first of your Mine issues will arrive.

Each issue will include stories tailored specifically to your interests, whether providing timely financial advice, helping to find the perfect golf club, or inspiring your next vacation.

Mine might not save print media, but at least they’re doing something to slow the death!
