Computers run on ones and zeroes, but good writing is built on the rule of threes — and Juiced.GS is no exception. In our history, we've had three editors, three associate editors, and three publishers. From 2007 to 2013, we tripled our number of subscribers; from 2012–2019 was another triplication; and 2013 to 2021, we have three times as many readers again. And next year, we're going to take the first three powers of three — 30, 31, and 32 — and multiply them together to get 27: the 27th year of publication of the world's longest-running Apple II magazine!

This number… it speaks to us.

That's right: Juiced.GS will continue to print throughout 2022! New subscribers can sign up today for a subscription starting immediately or in 2022 at our same great prices: $20 in the United States, $25 in Canada & Mexico, and $28 everywhere else. Existing subscriptions will automatically renew on January 1, 2022, also at these rates. Subscription status can be confirmed by logging into your account in the Juiced.GS online store.

To celebrate our longevity, we're offering three sales throughout the month of July and while supplies last: first-time subscribers who sign up for a 2021 subscription will get a bonus copy of our 100th issue from December 2020. That's five issues for the price of four!

The PDF editions of our back issue bundles of volumes 1–10 and volumes 11–20 are each 20% off. $64 will get you 10 years, 40 issues, and over 800 pages of Apple II reviews, interviews, and how-tos.

And Steve Weyhrich's book, Sophistication & Simplicity: The Life and Times of the Apple II Computer, is on sale: autographed hardcopies are just $10 plus shipping — or get it with the ebook for $25 plus shipping.

The staff of Juiced.GS looks forward to providing the Apple II community with another year of news, features, and tutorials. Apple II Forever!

April 1, 2021 · Comments Off on Juiced.GS now offering personal delivery

APRIL 1, 2021 — SAN FRANCISCO, CA — Gamebits, publisher of Juiced.GS, is excited to offer subscribers a more personal experience with the longest-running print publication dedicated to the Apple II. Starting in 2021, customers can opt into having their issues hand-delivered to their homes by the publisher.

"We already pulled this prank once before, in 2017," acknowledged publisher Ken Gagne. "But this past year has been challenging, with an unending pandemic, a contentious election, and a stuck boat. The last thing we wanted to do was give Juiced.GS readers another reason to question reality."

The Juiced.GS editorial board, feeling that they owed subscribers one for putting up with so many years of jokes, decided the best way to observe April Fool's Day 2021 would be to make good on a previous gag. Thus, a duty-bound Gagne, outfitted with copies of the March 2021 issue of Juiced.GS, boarded his Juicedmobile to deliver the magazine to subscribers throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

"This was the most fun I've had with Apple II users since the last KansasFest," gushed Gagne, 170 miles later. "I met the founder of The Retro Roadshow, a local retrocomputing user group. I chatted with the HP employee who donated many items from Chuck Colby's estate to the Internet Archive. I caught up with a Nox Archaist beta tester. I got a recommendation of a local ice-cream stand from from the person who streamed Second Life to an Apple II. I visited with a pastor who shoveled snow as a kid to earn money for his first IIGS. And I took a selfie with a former editor of Nibble Magazine."

Given the niche nature of retrocomputing, the opportunity to talk to other Apple II enthusiasts in person is rare — even more so during a pandemic. By offering personal delivery of Juiced.GS, Gamebits hopes to deliver not just a magazine, but much-needed connection during a time of isolation and separation.

At least one reader agreed. "Old computers are cool, but getting to know folks like you is the real fun of this hobby," texted Huxley Dunsany to Gagne as he rode off into the sunset. "We're grateful that you came by!"

Interested in personal delivery? Keep an eye on Ken's itinerary as he travels the country! In this program's pilot period, personal delivery is being offered on an opt-in, invitation-only basis — but if the timing and location work out, you too may be handed your next issue of Juiced.GS!
