Today’s new product URL

I was one of the “early adopters” of The Complete New Yorker. As the New Yorker was one of my favourite magazines from my earliest years in New York until I moved to London, I felt that the Complete New Yorker, with every page of every issue since 1925 up to early 2005, was something I had to have. So I bought it, and was only slightly miffed that the price came down as people balked at the large price and the large folder containing DVDs. The search function is nifty: the index is on your computer, and once you’ve narrowed down what you want to see, the program instructs you which DVD to load up to see your choice.

Well, I guess that wasn’t enough for the New Yorker (I miss William Shawn). They have now come out with this product which is along the same lines. I think it’s probably a first. Has 20 GB remaining on it for future issues! Get yours today! Preorders can get it personally inscribed!! Oh dear, the choices one has to make. If I bought this HWMBO would kill me. But, I really want it.

    They chose a really fragile medium here.

    Well, indeed. I presume they allow you to back it up to your backup medium of choice so that you won’t have to buy a new one or return the old drive (including case) for a refill, so to speak.

    I wonder if I can back up my current set to a drive of my own and not have to worry about the hard drive. I shall experiment.

    Of course, that means I’d have to get my backup drive engraved myself. Drat!
