For all of you waiting to get all of the Playboy issues so far on the iPad (Hugh Hefner himself announced it, so it’s true), we have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that Apple won’t be breaking its oath concerning pornography and nudity and the exploitation of women. Oh wait a sec, nevermind. There is no bad news, just Good news!
So as it turns out, Playboy issues will appear on the iPad however it won’t be a stand-alone app but rather, the magazines will be delivered through the standard browser. It will however be subscription-based service yet iPad compatible and using iPad’s functions. Thankfully, Apple doesn’t seem to be in the mood to make any concession, not even for that nasty old man Hef. Overall I think this is good news. Had Apple began to allow porn on their site, pandora’s box would be open and there would be no turning back.
Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great commence, but it is presently hampered by the inability to retailer locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit charge. If this improvements, then it will relatively negate this advantage for the Zune, but the ten songs per month will nonetheless be a huge plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
