Juiced.GS in 2013, wall calendar, and digital back issues

2013 wall calendar

Juiced.GS invites readers to enjoy another year of the longest-running Apple II print publication, with subscriptions now being offered for the magazine's 18th consecutive year.

"Every issue of Juiced.GS presents me as editor with a wonderful dilemma: choosing which stories will fit into our pages," says Ken Gagne. "There is so much happening in the Apple II world, from hardware and software to media and events, that we're never left with blank pages. The only way to cover it all is to continue publishing for another year."

The 2013 volume's four issues are available for $19 for United States subscribers, and $27 for international. New this year is a $24 price tier for subscribers in Canada and Mexico, as well as a "lifetime" subscription that creates a recurring, annual payment to Juiced.GS, automatically renewing your subscription for as long as Juiced.GS exists. (Lifetime subscriptions are an experimental feature that will be removed from the store in late September 2012.)

Juiced.GS 2013 calendarRetrocomputing enthusiasts who want more reasons to celebrate the new year can also order a 2013 wall calendar featuring photos and screenshots from the pages of Juiced.GS, many of them seen here in full color for the first time. Its 12 months also feature over a hundred dates of significance to Apple II users, including but not limited to Apple Computer Inc.'s founding to the discontinuation of the Apple IIe; the birthdays of Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs, and Ryan Suenaga; the launch dates of podcasts Open Apple, 1 MHz, and RetroMacCast; and geek dates such as π Day, International Talk Like a Pirate Day, and the premiere of the new Star Trek movie. Calendars cost $15, which includes shipping.

Juiced.GS: The Early Years BundleFinally, for Juiced.GS readers who are as interested in the history of the machine as they are the future, the first 24 issues of Juiced.GS are back in print for the first time in over a decade. These six volumes are available in hardcopy and digital editions, as individual volumes ($16 shipped / $12 downloaded) or a bundle ($84 shipped within the USA / $99 shipped internationally / $64 downloaded).

"Juiced.GS balances looking back at the legacy of the Apple II while covering and anticipating the next major milestone," says Ken Gagne. "With products that span nearly two decades, Juiced.GS is perfectly positioned to continue serving the community for years to come."

The 2013 calendar contest

At KansasFest 2009, we debuted a 2010 wall calendar featuring the best color photos from 14 years of Juiced.GS. At KansasFest 2012, we'll again make available a calendar that will offer Apple II users monthly inspiration of their favorite personal computer — except this time, you get to decide what the calendar will look like!

We've chosen 40 photos that represent a diversity of Apple II hardware, software, personalities, and events, from which you're invited to choose your favorite 12 for inclusion in the final calendar. The dozen photos with the most votes will be assigned a month and printed in glossy full-color, with the resulting calendars selling for $15 in person at KansasFest 2012 and $16 online afterward. Voting is not a commitment to purchase, so everyone is welcome to participate.

Let's make 2013 a year to remember. The poll closes on Thursday, May 31, 2012 at 11:59 PM EDT, so cast your vote today!
