On the raspberry pi OS, there is actually something called a "bookshelf" with digital magazines. I want to make one of those. I already stated so, you should read the full post.
It's already been suggested that that is a poor choice of name. Based on your posting history I'm not sure it's something I'm going to be interested in reading.
Keep in mind, I've only been here on this forum for a few days MAYBE a week.
That's not what I meant.
Hmm. What can I put here?

It's been done. Admittedly on the front, not inside.
I actually bought one of those magazines. But it had a raspberry pi pico, and not a pi B 3+ like I have. Just an example. For all I know, those magazines are LONG gone; The raspberry pi is in high demand and for a while was out of stock.
Are you sure? I expect you'll find it was a Pi Zero...
If the Pi Zero is a name for the Pico, then, yes it was. It was a raspberry pi Pico.

I've had this Pi for years, but I actually had no chance to use it for a year or two. I only got on this fourm because I had that one question, and then got hooked; more questions about the Pi.

I've degsined the cover and all of the pages. so, yes. I just want to put care and time into this magazine, and make it when I have the time. I do need one crazy thing to finalize one of the pages.

Yes.


Small, green, cheap, Raspberry Pi logo, usb connector.


Easy to see why anyone taking a superficial view might be confused.



But surely anyone seriously considering writing about Raspberry Pi products would not be deceived for a moment.

Write about the different Pi product,
Pi4, 400
ZeroW and Zero2
and the Pico/RP2040
And then the sensehat, audio boards etc.

Also then maybe a short history of the boards.

Doing this will help you learn about them.
All Pi magazines should have that in them near the start.

Have a look at https://magazines.micromag.cc/ for a small team that put a magazine together for a different but similar product.

Make a mastodon tooter build that collect mastodon tots and displays them on a variety of displays.
That's seems topical.

Gotta applaud OP's rampant optimism, but... OP: starting a project, whatever it is, requires more than just a simple idea.

Take your simple idea, and invest some serious time in scoping out a) what already exists, b) what you can do with the resources/time/money available to you, c) then scope out what resources it would take to actually implement your idea, and d) develop a sketch of a plan to deliver the first release (of whatever it is, magazine, code, etc), and think about how you'll maintain momentum for doing the work (or getting it done somehow) for future releases, and whether there is actually sufficient interest to justify the investment in the first place.

It seems like you've done very little homework on your idea other than spin up some internal optimism about it, and have thrown it into this forum trying to leverage the collective intelligence here.

Leveraging the collective brainpower here is a great idea, but when your initial idea/proposal is close to non-existent, and it's clear that you've not done much in-depth...ANYTHING to flesh it out, you're likely not going to get folks here to do much of your work for you.

May I suggest that you Get Serious, as I suggested above. Knowing how to develop ideas into a plan is a great skill to have to help you have a successful life.

How about they were both made by the people who made Raspberry pi? How about the fact that the chips were made by broadcom? Those would be a bit better, though comparing to every raspberry pi existing.

Please make it very clear on the cover of this supposed magazine that you are the editor. That will make it easier for me to avoid it.

The raspberry PI Pico chip (the RP2040) is NOT a Broadcom design!
It was designed by Raspberry PI engineers!

Also the chip is manufactured in a FAB under raspberry PI control. Thats why the chip availability crisis does not affect the Pico.

That is not my understanding. I believe RPL placed an order for a very substantial number of the chips before chippageddon occured and that RPL does not have control over any fab. (Tail does not wag the dog!)

I think this might be a language thing. We are in control, in that we have our place in the schedule and tell the fab what we want them to make, not that we are in control of the fab itself.

They ordered a lot of wafers and with over 20000 chips per wafer they have plenty. From the Raspberry Pi News (Jan 2022):
RP2040 is built on a more modern semiconductor process (TSMC 40LP) than most other microcontrollers. As a result, it makes extremely efficient use of scarce silicon wafer supply: each die occupies just 2mm2, and each 300mm wafer yields roughly 21,000 dice. We have sufficient wafer stock on hand to produce 20 million chips, with more on the way.
