Subscribed for years but seems different (and thinner) since merger.

Anyone else come up for renewal since they merged with Elektor?

Yea, wrote a check couple of weeks ago for $39.95 for a year. More advertising, less pages, and Steve belly aches on last page. The tech. articles seem to talk more of history. Coming close to say forget it. I'm just a hobbiest in senior years, doing home projects.

I haven't been compelled to resubscribe since they merged/were bought.

I was also getting Elektor for a while but I wasn't happy with the articles..

Elektor follows an enthusiast/hobbyist track that I don't enjoy
reading. I am careful not to place the "blame" on them, but perhaps
because I used to get it in while in college I actually learned new
things. A few years experience doing embedded systems and I don't
learn new ideas from magazines.

I'm still a subscriber, it's a little thinner but I think all magazines
are. The only thing that annoys me are the dang Elector ads. They just
seem a little cheesy for Circuit Cellar.

If any of you might be attending CES this week in Las Vegas, there are free copies available of both magazines.

Just a few words in support of Circuit Cellar, since I have a vested interest:

* Yes, the size has dropped from 96 pages to 80 pages (perfect-bound magazines
 are generally assmebled in booklets of 16 pages), but now all of the pages
 are full-color. (They weren't, prior to 2010.)

* We have a larger -- and growing -- family of regular columnists, including:
 - George Novacek, "The Consummate Engineer", topics relating to design
   robustness.
 - Robert Lacoste, "The Darker Side", topics not necessarily related directly
   to embedded computers, including analog/RF circuits and regulatory issues.
 - Bob Japenga, "Embedded in Thin Slices", topics about more complex
   embedded applications involving an RTOS or Linux.
 - Richard Wotiz, "Embedded Unveiled", topic relating to the underlying
   technologies of embedded applications.

* The very successful series of design contests is continuing; there's
 currently a PIC32 contest running now:
 http://www.designspark.com/chipkitchallenge

* Subscribers have access to expanded digital content on the cc-access
 website.

Remember, Circuit Cellar authors are people just like yourselves. Over the
years, more than 1000 different people have written articles. If you have
the slightest itch to write about a topic that interests you, please get in
touch with the managing editor, CJ Abate <EraseMEcjspam_OUTspamTakeThisOuTcircuitcellar.com>. He also
welcomes all feedback, positive or negative.

They use to give them away for free when I was in college so I've been
hooked ever since :) I don't even work in EE but enjoy reading the
articles and keeping up with the scene. It's my favorite tech
magazine.

Curious though was looking at the ads in the Jan edition which
normally has a fair number of SBC's.  Wonder how these companies, that
are charging $150-$200 for a SBC, will compete with less features than
the Raspberry Pi which will cost $25-35.

Manufacturers who sell industrial electronics move really slowly. If
you used one of those SBCs in your gadget and you have established
software and customers then you won't be likely to change that very
quickly.

Also the Raspberry Pi is not marketed as an OEM resale SBC. It's educational.
It somewhat reminds me of asking why the Arduino hasn't put embedded
developers out of business yet.

In the IT field I wouldn't have a job without change.
But on a personal level it's hard to embrace. :-)

When my wife asks me how I like a dish and I respond "it's different" she assumes I don't like it.
Same thing here - Circuit Cellar "is different" but that doesn't mean I don't like it. :-)

thanks for the feedback
