The Complete National Geographic Collection

If the entire Calvin and Hobbes collection can be found in a complete set, then why shouldn’t National Geographic? Well now it can!

A couple weeks ago National Geographic began selling its complete collection of magazines on a 160GB hard drive through its store. The hard drive contains a digital copy of every single magazine published over the past 120 years, and includes all of the beautiful, top-notch photographs the magazine is known for.

What’s even better is the fact that the magazines are packaged in an application that allows you to search for particular topics or even photographs. The hard drive has 90GB of free space for your own use, comes with a DVD with photo tips, and costs $199.95.

    Neat idea to sell on a hard drive and I have seen it as the DVD set. I wonder what the quality of the images are? does anyone know?

    The images are 200 DPI (same resolution on DVD or hard drive), and they print very clearly as well. I was the lead developer on the project, so ya heard it here first! :)
