I do buy Silicon Chip Magazine, from time to time but
find a lot more online for free nowadays. particularly circuit diagrams for the hobbyist.
new there is
DIYODE a new electronics magazine!  so are printed electronics magazines still relevant today?

Yes, printed magazines are very relevant. I often find I am out of comms range and the magazine is perfect.

Also on the coffee table at work mags generates lots of discussion.

I am keen to check out Diyode, but SiliconChip is a top quality full colour Australian mag that has well researched articles that I am happy to support.

Yes especially relevant when you are having a bog. You need something good to read   :-DD

I just grabbed a complimentary copy from Altronics. I was going to pay for it with my order but they said it was a 1st edition complimentary copy on the house. Previously I tried to get one from the news stands but could not find any. The sales guy alluded that this mag was way ahead of the competition. Interesting times ;)

cheers

I loved Silicon Chip, had an international subscription for many years. Great articles. North American electronics magazines I find are not as good.

But expensive including shipping to Canada and a SC digital subscription requires on-line internet access and uses Adobe Flash and so slow to load. Tried to purchase A4-size binders, no sorry we don't ship those internationally, so I gave up. News stands don't carry it anymore up north.
British Everyday Practical Electronics republishes many SC projects, so I instead pick that up.

Diyode looks... nothing at their website yet 'til first issue July 1, 2017. I'll keep an eye out
