Juiced.GS (ISSN 2162-7746) is a quarterly print magazine for Apple II users. With a highly-knowledgeable staff of Apple II experts with years of experience, we provide top-notch news, reviews, interviews, and tutorials for all Apple II users, having expanded beyond the publication's original focus on the Apple IIGS.
Juiced.GS was founded by Max Jones, a professional newspaper editor, in 1996. Starting in the spring of 2002, Syndicomm took on the role of publisher of Juiced.GS, retaining the original staff of writers, but passing on editorial control to Ryan Suenaga, the former editor of The Lamp and GEnieLamp Apple II newsletters, as well as a continuing contributor to Juiced.GS.
As of 2006, our editor is Ken Gagne, who also operates Gamebits, the publishing company of Juiced.GS as of 2007. For more information about the history of Juiced.GS, see our dedicated page on the Apple II History Museum site.

Ivan recently unmothballed his childhood Apple II Plus and IIe, and is delighted to discover that he still remembers how to CALL -151.|
|Martin Haye||Martin Haye (Contributing Writer) grew up all over California and finally settled in Santa Cruz. When he got his first computer, an Apple II Plus, in 1980, an eight-hour-a-day TV habit turned into a nine-hour-a-day programming habit. Over the following three decades, he never forgot the challenge and feeling of freedom that the openness of the Apple II line gave him. Now in the midst of a career as a programmer and having learned a lot about programming and computer science, he spends much of his free time answering the question, "If I knew then what I know now, what insanely great things could I have programmed on my Apple II?"|
|Mike Maginnis||Mike Maginnis (Contributing Writer) lives in Denver, Colorado, and works as a network engineer for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. He has been an Apple II user since 1982, and is an occasional programmer, aspiring writer, and blogger for 6502lane.net.|

He is probably best known for Spectrum, the only full featured GUI telecoms program for the IIGS, but has written many other utilities over the years. Once chairman of the UK Apple2000 User Group, Ewen is no stranger to writing and publishing, having edited the Apple2000 magazine for many years.|

|Max Jones||Max Jones (Editor Emeritus) lives in Indiana. Max is a professional newspaper editor and is the founder of Juiced.GS. Although he has stepped down as editor, he continues to be a force for good on the Juiced.GS team, and we all appreciate the fact that he did the hard part by getting the magazine off the ground. These days, Max mostly… well… we're not sure what he does, but we sure like having him around. He's kind of like a mascot now.|
|Ryan Suenaga||Ryan Suenaga (Staff Writer Emeritus), former editor-in-chief of Juiced.GS, was a long-time Apple II enthusiast living on the eastern coast of the island of O'ahu. His Apple II career included writing for GS+, The Apple Blossom, The AppleWorks Gazette, and Juiced.GS as well as editor of the electronic newsletters GenieLamp A2 and The Lamp!. Ryan was also on the staff of the Apple II areas of Delphi, Genie, and A2Central.com, and he produced the A2Unplugged podcast and wrote Apple II software in his less-than-copious free time.
