November 25, 2013 · Comments Off on Goodbye, Google Checkout; hello, Amazon Payments

DwollaEver since the Juiced.GS online store launched in 2002, we have accepted payment for online orders via PayPal, a gateway preferred and used by the majority of our customers. But we realize one size doesn't fit all, and insisting on PayPal deprives our customers of the freedom of choice. So when we remodeled our online store in 2012, we added two new online payment options: Google Checkout and Dwolla. Juiced.GS subscribers have since used both alternatives to make their purchases.

But the Google empire is constantly reassessing the viability of its services, and most recently, they turned their sights to Google Checkout and found it wanting. On November 20, Google Checkout was retired and is no longer available for use by any vendor. As such, it has been removed from the Juiced.GS store.

We continue to accept online payments via Dwolla, and not just because it charges the fewest fees; by subscribing to Juiced.GS, our customers are supporting the little guy, and we like to do the same. But Dwolla isn't the most popular choice among our customers, and we still want to offer a mainstream alternative PayPal.

Amazon PaymentsThat is why, starting today, we now accept tender via Amazon Payments — the same gateway used by Kickstarter, the crowdfunding site featured on the cover Juiced.GS Volume 17, Issue 1. If you already have a credit card on file with online retailer Amazon.com, you can make your purchase in the Juiced.GS store without providing any additional billing information.

We hope the checkout process in our online store continues to prove convenient for all your Apple II periodical needs — whether you're buying subscriptions, back issues, or PDFs. As always, if you have any feedback, suggestions, complaints, or concerns that can be used to better serve you, please let us know!

August 20, 2013 · Comments Off on Sponsoring 8 Bit Weapon, ComputeHer & IFComp

Juiced.GS relies on an active Apple II community for us to have products and events to report. We are thrilled to return the favor by supporting those groups who continuously further the retrocomputing community.

8 Bit WeaponChiptune artists 8 Bit Weapon and ComputeHer have become renowned as the premier musicians to use Apple II computers as instruments in their musical performances. They are soon to take their show on the road to Europe, and Juiced.GS is a proud sponsor of their tour. Catch them in Manchester, UK, September 12–15, 2013.

Want more? You can read our interview with Seth Sternberger (alias 8 Bit Weapon) in Juiced.GS Volume 12, Issue 4; our review of his album Electric High EP in Volume 14, Issue 3; and a review of DMS Drummer, an Apple II music synthesizer produced in collaboration with Michael J. Mahon, in Volume 17, Issue 1. Watch future issues of Juiced.GS for news and behind-the-scenes looks at their upcoming Apple II role-playing game, Lawless Legends!

Interactive Fiction Competition 2013As last year, Juiced.GS is also proud to support the annual Interactive Fiction Competition, or IFComp. Text adventures have been around only slightly longer than the Eamon adventure system for the Apple II, with our favorite retrocomputing platform doing much to further the genre. IFComp continues that tradition by encouraging today's programmers and storytellers to use interactive fiction to tell new tales.

Deadline for contestant registration is September 1, with winners having a choice of prizes that includes both a subscription to Juiced.GS as well as our Interactive Fiction Concentrate PDF that compiles all Juiced.GS's text adventure coverage across the years.

Our thanks to all that these groups do to keep the Apple II alive. If you or a group you're associated with would also like to work with Juiced.GS, please contact us!
