The New Yorker Goes Digital… Again

Not content to let its 4000 digitized back issues sit in DVD stasis, The New Yorker has released a small portable hard drive to incapsulate every issue from February, 1925 – April, 2006. The new offering comes in the form of an 80GB hard drive housed in a 3 x 5 brushed-aluminum casing.

Being a literary nerd, the thought of having 4000 issues of The New Yorker is somewhat appealing, but I can’t see myself ever truly putting it to use for anything other than dorked out lit cred. Oh well, it is available now for $299 and if you order in the relatively near future, you can get it engraved free of charge.
