May 7, 2010 – Today’s most interesting stories in technology, media and entertainment:

Safe Playboy?: Playboy is set to become safe for work. The storied men’s magazine will launch “The Smoking Jacket,” more in the vein of Maxim and Esquire than Playboy. Now you can authoritatively say, you only read it for the articles.
