December 21, 2009 · Comments Off on Volume 14, Issue 4 now shipping

The December 2009 issue of Juiced.GS has been mailed to all domestic and international subscribers — just in time to make its way into your stocking this holiday week! If the season is too busy for you to enjoy twenty pages of Apple II goodness, then place it on your coffee table and remember to read it during your vacation. And when you're done, come back here, as the online issue links include exclusive companion content to this issue's tech-torial.

The December issue is so packed with content from so many authors, we couldn't fit many pictures. Since text suffers far less than graphics in a black-and-white medium, I hope you'll find the lack of visual variety is offset by the in-depth news, reviews, and interviews.

This issue completes our 2009 volume, meaning all four issues can be purchased as a bundle for $16. If you haven't renewed yet for 2010, subscriptions are available in our online store.
