(NEWSER) – Playboy magazine has decided it no longer makes sense to try to compete with an Internet full of photos of naked women. The 62-year-old magazine is undergoing a major revamp and will dispense with nude photos when it relaunches in March, the New York Times reports.

The change apparently has the approval of 89-year-old founder and editor-in-chief Hugh Hefner, the BBC reports.
