    One benefit dead tree format has, or actually two. First it operates without electricity and almost any light conditions. Second, it docent expire. You can keep that and give it to your kids decades from now, etc…

    Are there adds by the Diyck Head?

    Electr magazines are indeed awesome. Personally I prefer a printed magazine.
    Elektor is indeed still going by the way, latest edition arrived this week. And they have their own design team as well.

    Here in U.S. we have Nuts & Volts Magazine also on the net.

    Thank heavens there’s an alternative to Silicon Chip mag!

  7. Scott Cole on April 19, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Where did you get that awesome chart in the background?

  8. William Piccione on April 19, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    Here’s a novel idea, a slick 10 dollar ELECTRONICS magazine about what looks to be mostly computer programming. I’ll pass on this one.

    Love the banana!

  10. Gameboygenius on April 19, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    I like how both readings of the name work, fully! Diode, of course, but also DIY ode, ie an ode to DIY.

  11. Felix Hillebrand on April 19, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    A couple of weeks ago, I saw a cool article in the elector, I think it as a inductive power transfer solution (from Würth Electronic) and I remembered that my ex employer, I was just a intern, wanted a wireless power transfer soltution for his prduct, so I mailed him the article, and he was like "who were you again? Oh tat intern from last year! Are you interrested in a job?"

  12. T on April 19, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    DIYODE is a cringey name.

  13. steve c on April 19, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    DIYODE? Aussies can’t spell!

  14. funkyironman69 on April 19, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    I did not get the title until you explained it lol.

  15. Graeme Gets on April 19, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    I reserved by copy 🙂 but was $8 to post to UK! Not sure Ill subscribe if the shipping is that much – might have to do digital.

  16. Johannes Jung on April 19, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Really? Paying for ads? Not really! Thats why i stopped reading Elektor. Too much advertising!

  17. Nita Vesa on April 19, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Damn, this looks like a fun magazine I’d love to read! There is something comfortable about reading an actual physical magazine and I prefer it over digital displays, and the content looks nice, too!

    I’m not aware of anything similar over here in Finland, which is a terrible, terrible shame 🙁

  18. The Eminent Joshua E. Hrouda on April 19, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    What about… Its not the same on my stupid smartphone?

  19. slr150 on April 19, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Should electronics magazines be electronic?

  20. Lakes57 on April 19, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Back in the day (70’s/80’s) in the UK, I read Practical Electronics and Elektor magazine and built the TV games computer and teletext decoder from Elektor.

  21. AlexeyTea on April 19, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Banana for scale? 🙂

  22. racer9x on April 19, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Great to see a new magazine like that. It really looks to be quality. Hopefully it will grow and improve over time.

  23. Karl Baron on April 19, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    So does it charge over microUSB or USB-C?

  24. Robert Nicoll on April 19, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    Just my personal opinion on Silicon Chip, they’re well past stale.
    Leo rants and whines each month with everything negative to say he can find, especially when it comes to efforts on renewables.
    A recent editors note even covered the dangers of teenage girls with feet on dashboards vs airbags, yeah, not a great thing, but that should be content for an automotive mag.
    Each month old projects are re-hashed, and rarely is there anything fresh of relevant.
    They push their micromite whilst the rest of the world is using arduinos and other more common platforms for hobby.
    I currently have a subscription but have not read the last 3 issues past a couple of pages.

  25. DAVID GREGORY KERR on April 19, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    It is so you have something to read even if the power goes off for some reason, I wonder if we could show how to design and build a MW/LW radio using a 74HC152 as a double balanced QSD plus a 74AC74 configured as a Johnson Counter driving a RF Phasing combiner via a pair of 2 MC1350 pre amps into a conventional AM detector or even via a Bridge rectifier via MC1350 then a volume control then onto a low power PWM based on the NE556

    elektor is still alive

  27. Keit Hammleter on April 19, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    Diyode is a useless magazine. It’s just pretty pictures with no technical content. Read Diyode and you learn what other folks have built. Read Silicon Chip or Elektor or Circuit Cellar and you learn how you can design and build yourself.
    This eevblog2 guy knows nothing. He says Silicon Chip is the only magazine in the world that has their own design facility. So do Elektor and Circuit Cellar, just to name the prominent English language magazines. Other parts of the world have their own. He says at about 7:30 he doesn’t know if Elektor is still going – implying that it probably isn’t. It most certainly is – a good as ever.

    When I understood how many stupid aggressive advertising is in those magazines I realized that I am paying for 4 pages of useful text and diagram and 40 of glossy shiny advertisements… WTF, they should pay me to read that crap. Especially notorious in this regard are american magazines. Aggressive advertisement killed a lot of search sites, almost killed television, killed a lot of magazines but no stupidity and greed are universal and indestructible.

    I subscribed months ago. Whereis mine?

  31. pikadroo on April 19, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    Any of us could have thought of this, so why didn’t we? 🤔 I want this magazine just because of the name! 😝

  32. chris manning on April 19, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    would be worth subscribing to in America??

  33. twocvbloke on April 19, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    The only trouble with magazines, finding the time to read them, I had a year’s subscription to MagPi last year (yeah, just for the PiZero, sad, I know), flicked through them, stacked them up, passed them onto my nephew who’s more into programming than I am, I just wanted the hardware…

  34. STephanM on April 19, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    9:20 I think, you mean fritzing? @EEVBlog2

  35. Pekka Grönfors on April 19, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    The smell of a new printed magazine is priceless.

  36. Joshua Cox on April 19, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Is it in english or aussie, na just kidding love you guy’s. I Could’t help myself. had to do it. hope the magazine can stand the test of the digital age. i will have to find a copy here in northwest Indiana. thanks for the heads up Dave.

  37. m3chanist on April 19, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    Looks like it has an incredible refresh rate, and an effectively infinite battery life!
    What will they think of next!

  38. Christian Meinert on April 19, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    One big advantage of magazine: peer review! There is a lot of bullshit out there and beginners can’t detect the horrible and sometimes dangerous designs. If you can trust the magazine, it is likely that you can trust the circuit design. Google how to connect an led to a MCU ….

    7 minutes of waffle waffle waffle, then some advertisement crap, them more waffle

  41. 101blog on April 19, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    I think Elektor magazine has at least some of there own guys doing stuff however they do still get most of their stuff from subscribers

  42. Gary g1fsh on April 20, 2021 at 12:00 am

    i fully agree

  43. ms767210 on April 20, 2021 at 12:01 am

    I bought the first issue in print and if I like will subscribe digital. I do like to hold a magazine in my hand but collections take up too much space and I rarely go back to them once I’ve read anyway.

  44. wolvenar on April 20, 2021 at 12:01 am

    As long as its not chock full of advertising with no worthwhile content. That is the main reason I gave up "dead tree format". When supposed content were thinly veiled ads, such magazines are seriously just fire starting material.

  45. Electra Flarefire on April 20, 2021 at 12:01 am

    Poor Freetronics.. As far as I can tell from talking to the manager of a local store, Jaycar have basically dropped their whole range and when it’s sold out, there’ll be no more.
    Shame. I’m not paying jaycar prices for Chinese stuff. The high price of Freetronics at least matched the quality!

  46. Mirko Mueller on April 20, 2021 at 12:03 am

    Dead tree format – nice…

  47. Crazyboy formally abcdefg on April 20, 2021 at 12:04 am

    Id buy a subscription in the uk. Even a pdf version 🙂 how do i

  48. jort93z on April 20, 2021 at 12:08 am

    we have "Make:" in germany. it focuses mostly on arduino and raspberry pi stuff. but definitly an electronics magazine.

  49. ROJIN PHILIP on April 20, 2021 at 12:10 am

    hi, Is Insolight high efficiency solar panel to be taken seriously?

  50. Matthew Suffidy on April 20, 2021 at 12:10 am

    Hope they don’t ‘diye’ out.
