    Playboy cellphone only marginally linked to mag (pretty bad phone, too)

    In the interest of human dignity, I will spare you any “funny” jokes about this Playboy cellphone. The only thing that makes it a Playboy phone is the logo on the front. That’s it. And on top of that, it’s a pretty terrible phone for 2008. Only a 1.3-megapixl cam and 10MB onboard memory. You have heard of the iPhone, right? I hear it’s pretty good. via Gizmodo Read More

    PlayboyU: All Tease and No Action

    I was skeptical when Playboy launched its exclusive social network for college students in August called PlayboyU, mostly because Hef’s adult entertainment empire had chosen merely to brand a standard Ning website. While it’s questionable to me whether a corporate brand can ever sustain a large and active social network, it just didn’t seem like the company was trying very hard… Read More

    The Old College Try: Who Will Give Students Their Facebook Back?

    While Alice Mathias may have overplayed the frivolous uses of Facebook for college students in her article called The Fakebook Generation published in the Grey Lady a few weeks ago, she was certainly correct in saying that Facebook lost a certain je ne sais quoi for students when it opened up to the real world last fall. So instead of trying to take this $15 billion animal head on, as one $222… Read More

    New Playboy Social Network Built On Ning

    Well, this is a big win for build-your-own-social-network Ning, which just raised a massive round of funding. The new Playboy social network we covered earlier today is actually built on Ning, not self-built code or one of the many other white label social networking options available.

    Update: Playboy U is built on the Ning platform The recent launch of Silicon Valley funded adult/porn site Zivity raised a few eyebrows. Now one of the old sovereigns of sexy is getting into the game, too. CrunchGear reports that Playboy is launching their own sexy social networking site just for college students, Playboy U. Playboy U requires all users to have a .edu email addresses, mimicking… Read More

    iPorn fer Yer iPhone

    Playboy, always at the forefront of high technology and commerce, has created some special wallpapers for your iPhone. Not much skin in these — they want you to “buy” their “magazine” to see boobs — but it’s important that people understand that even in the dusty halls of Playboy, behind a vaseline-stained skrim and rolls of gauzy curtain material, there… Read More
