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!

Juiced.GS Volume 25, Issue 4 (December 2020)

This is our 100th issue, with a whopping 28 pages of awesome articles! Read Ivan Drucker's reviews of 14 different Apple II emulators; Evan Koblentz's tutorial for connecting the Apple II to LEGO bricks; a guide for streaming from your Apple II to Twitch.tv and an interview with popular streamer LadyAiluros; an interview with Lee Fastenau, who's porting Tetris from the Game Boy to the Apple II; a celebration of the podcast Eaten By A Grue's completion of its original mission; a look behind the scenes of Kay Savetz's Apple II Twitter bot; a reflection on 25 years of Juiced.GS; original cover art by Krishna Sadasivam of PC Weenies — and much, much more!
