New Yorker Hard Drive

Electronic catalogs of periodicals are rarely successful in the same way that encyclopedias can be, simply through the inherent limitations of the storage format: periodicals rarely stop publication after a collection is released, leaving buyers of CD and DVD archives with a catalog already outdated before it arrived at the door. The famous New Yorker has chosen the much more pragmatic route of an external hard drive. Connecting through USB 2, the 80GB drive currently stores every New Yorker issue from February 1925 through to April 2006, images included. Importantly, that data is not static - owners can receive updates that add more recent issues to the drive and take advantage of free storage space. Complete New Yorker drives work with both MacOS X and Windows 2000/XP and are shipping today for $299.
