Playboy’s New iPad App Diverges From Its Primary Selling Point


There are so many reasons one might want to read Playboy on a mobile device. There are unclothed cans, unclothed nether regions, unclothed bottoms, unclothed lady stems — all manner of female body parts that stubbornly remain cloaked in veils of cotton, silk, or, worst of all, corduroy. Too bad Steve Jobs believed his dad when he said he bought it for the articles. Like Vice magazine before it, Playboy’s iPad app falls in line with Jobs’s anti-porn crusade, featuring limited content and no nudity. We think we know who’ll be buying it.
