I 'm pretty sure that 07:00 GMT arrives at the same time there as it does here. Can you get a physical copy of the MagPi in Korea?
(I can pick up a copy for you if you want but I doubt that the giveaway will be worth shipping it out to Korea for you).

Yes, but somebody is going to blab about it, and probably pretty early too.

Well, that's often been the case but maybe the Pi foundation have got all the leaks plugged this time.
Only 15 hours 44 minutes to wait to find out the answer.

Normally RS or Farnell would have blabbed by now!

The MagPi is internally produced though, so perhaps that has made a difference. Or not. Bwahahahahaha.

It's usually left to The Register or SlashDot to do the pre-announcement stuff.

It's a 'golden ticket' type promotion to win a (current model) Raspberry Pi (and extend sales of the printed Magpi). The Oracle has decreed that I am probably 2% right.

Of course there is a new Pi model coming. As soon as a model is announced it is immediately true that "there is a new model Pi coming". You just don't know when.

The only time this will not be true is the eventual sad day when the whole ride stops. Nothing lasts forever, not even nothing.

Sadly sad at the lack of people guessing correctly, or even close (well, maybe slightly close). Been quite a few hints.

Free camera? The price has dropped quite a bit recently... I guess a new sensor may be on the horizon and it's time to offload the old stock ;)

I guess Magpi will come with a free mouse mat, poster or cardboard box to take a Pi

One thing that appears to be missing from this thread is that RS in the UK has reduced the price of some Raspberry products such as the compute module, compute card thing, cameras etc. Pi Cameras £8 + vat

It must be something interesting because the Forum Moderators are looking at the thread.

Maybe it's something Retro going back to bedroom coding as most of the Raspberry Pi engineers would have cut their teeth on a ZX81 or Spectrum. I know, it's a build your own Cassette Recorder. :lol:
We look at all threads! But, interesting, yes, seems likely.
It's definitely something Retro. It's a ZX81 Keyboard :lol:
