UPDATE: The publisher of Juiced.GS has retracted the press release of April 1, 2014, which included a typo.
The section which indicated that Juiced.GS would be expanding to cover the Macintosh computer was supposed to read, "Juiced.GS is doing better than ever. It has always been, and will always be, exclusively an Apple II publication, serving the community that still believes in 'Apple II Forever'."
"I regret that our proofreaders did not catch this minor typo," said Ken Gagne, the magazine's editor. "The keys are, like, right next to each other."
APRIL 1, 2014 — LEOMINSTER, MA — Juiced.GS announced today an expansion of coverage that will ensure the magazine continues breaking records as the longest-running Apple II print publication.
"I've previously gone on record as saying that Juiced.GS will stop printing the day there's nothing left to write about," says Ken Gagne, publisher since 2007. "That day has finally arrived when we must make a difficult decision."
With hardware like the Uthernet II, CFFA3000, Apple II Pi, and Replica-1 Ten; software such as Sweet16, A2CLOUD, stitch, and Retro Fever; events like KansasFest, OzKFest, and Vintage Computer Fest; and books such as Sophistication & Simplicity, The WOZPAK, and Jobs, the Apple II community is experiencing a drought of innovation, resulting in the shrinkage of Juiced.GS from 24 pages to a mere 20.
But, says Gagne, "Rather than admit defeat, we're demonstrating the innovation that Apple users are known for. Stealing a play from the inCider/A+ handbook, Juiced.GS is expanding to provide coverage of classic Macintosh computers."
Starting with the April 1 issue, Juiced.GS will feature retro Macs, defined as those computers produced from January 1984 through March 1991. The news, reviews, interviews, tips, and tricks Juiced.GS has become known for will be applied to this new platform, encouraging Apple II users to upgrade to the next generation of Apple computer, eventually evolving the publication's name to Juiced.LC.
"In this way, Apple II users can express their trademark belligerence at refusing to upgrade by doing so — but on our own time," boasts Gagne. "Let's see Apple claim this as a victory!"
With the new focus, Juiced.LC will bump up its length to 22 pages per issue. Subscriptions will continue to be available for $19 for customers in the United States, $24 in Canada, and $27 elsewhere in the world. New with this volume is a PDF-only option, available for $99/issue, offsetting the carbon footprint of delivering millions of bits per issue as opposed to a mere 22 pages in hardcopy.· Tags: April, April Fools, Juiced.LC, Mac, Macintosh
