“Playboy” coming to the iPad, Jobs be damned

Pin it

Our best wishes are with Steve Jobs during his health-related hiatus, but damn: he's been a bit of a prude when it comes to adult content on the iPad/iPhone. But the Playboy empire won out when Hefner tweeted, "Playboy on iPad will be uncensored, Hugh." (He's speaking to another Twitter user named Hugh. No relation.)

The "uncensored" part is a bit ambiguous. Yes, most steamy magazine content will be featured on the iPad, but when it comes to their complete archives spanning back to 1953 — newly-released and digitizedyou'll be directed to the website. It's a bit of a technicality but hardly a pain (especially when you consider that the New Yorker released their full archive on three-hundred floppy discs). Despite the miffed feelings between Hefner and Jobs in the past, I'm sure Apple and Playboy are very happy about their new relationship.
