    Smart move. Eliminate the thing that made the magazine what it is.

    That's a great move. I also heard coke is decided to drop beverages from its offerings and dominos will no longer sell pizza.

    When you want to grow, make sure to eliminate what works!

    In all seriousness though I sort of get it. With computers playboy is bullshit and people have become so desensitized that it's no longer even appealing. They hope that by going more pg-13 and less r they will be the new maxim, but that will also prove futile.

    Essentially this is a case of them not being able to go more x rated, can't keep going as they are losing money, so going more pg is their only prayer.

    Rip playboy

    If they go through with it, the magazine will be gone in a year.

    That's exactly what they're doing. The focus will be on the interviews.
