We hope you had some quiet and beautiful days with your friends and/or families!
We as an Independent Online Publishing House wish you and all of our readers as well as the users of our apps
a wonderful and successful 2015!

P.S.: The title above is to nothing related whatsoever. Just in case you were curious.
2014 is finally over.
We think we did a good job so there’s nothing more to say than:
Merry Christmas and a happy new year for all our clients, authors, programmers, staff as well as their families!
We are looking forward to a fresh and exciting 2015 and promise we’ll keep up our hard working.
We would also like to thank explicitly all of our Android downloaders and users out there!
We did as we promised.
You need at least Frozen Yogurt to run it. This way we guarantee that our app runs on as much Android devices as possible. Also, up to Android 4.1.2 it’s possible to shovel the app to your SD card. It’s very small, maybe you never need this feature: only 400KB (without cached files).
Well, show your support! We hope you like it, it’s completely free as always!
Our ambitions won’t stop here, of course. We released 4 brand new Android apps to the world in only two years. If we keep up this pace we will have a very neat repository of Android apps in the future. Something to aim for!
Show ♥ for the Droids,
Good day folks,
we launched a brand new design for one of our projects:
Shout outs to http://cherryframework.com for the collaboration!
There is still stuff to do the upcoming weeks:
- theme color change
- we need a favicon. So if you have one for us, please tell us! A nice tire maybe
- Android app upcoming
We also provided a Facebook page for the site: https://facebook.com/jpcars.de. You know, for “social stuff”.
Would be happy to hear your opinions. Hope you enjoy!

We were able to interview our most famous writer via Email. Here is what he had to say, we hope you enjoy our interview as much as we did!
AETHYX MEDIAE: When did you start writing?
c1ph4: In school.
AETHYX MEDIAE: Well. When did you start writing online?
c1ph4: 1st of November 2001. The date when my cipha.net went online.
AETHYX MEDIAE: What were your inspirations?
c1ph4: I’m born in the 80s and a kid of the 90s. So, when I started writing online, the C64 was 19 years old, like myself. The GameBoy was 12 and the PlayStation 7. These machines influenced me heavily. To this date, I never experienced something similar. Maybe Android, but practically it’s built on Linux. Yeah, Linux too.
AETHYX MEDIAE: Why did you start writing online?
c1ph4: Heavy. Firstly, because I could. I’m into this web shit since 2000. And what I was looking for was a project I could do for myself. For my mind, for my future, for my interests. What I was doing before was just web design, on a very low level. What I could do with Greymatter at the end of 2001 was to expand my mind, my thoughts, my views. It was, practically, never easier. And never more technologically advanced. I loved that back then.
AETHYX MEDIAE: How long did it take for cipha.net until it was launched?
c1ph4: Two weeks. From concept to launch. I made scribbles about the topics, about the meta tags back then. I made sketches about the design. I think, regarding my very young age, it was very ambitious. Maybe more ambitious than healthy. I mean, this was my first solo project. It had to be independent, it had to be strong, it had to blew minds.
AETHYX MEDIAE: Was the site a success?
c1ph4: No. There were about 14 visitors per day from the start and I didn’t know if these were real humans or just robots. It blew my mind. Of course, this was my intention, my fault. Whatever. The project grew with the entries. I didn’t care about anything. I just wanted to do stuff online.
AETHYX MEDIAE: You suddenly stopped in 2010. Why?
c1ph4: You know, there was nothing left in the first place what needed to be done. I did e v e r y t h i n g. I did reviews, rhymes, wrote about political and technological situations. I was saturated. I felt that I had to stop. I hurt people back then, I was fucked. This was it, I thought. I went over the top, I didn’t care, nobody did care, so what? Let’s fuck cipha.net! Finito.
AETHYX MEDIAE: Did you regret it?
c1ph4: No, not a second. For the cyberpunks out there, I summarized my texts into ebooks. They may buy it or not, I did my job. It’s there for everyone to read. Read it, expand your mind, let it be, I don’t care. It’s your life. Waste it or do something useful.
AETHYX MEDIAE: What are you doing now?
c1ph4: I’m working. 24/7. I’m a computer scientist for profession. I pay my rent with it. But there are more things I would like to do. I can’t. I came from the gutter, this will never change, no matter how hard I try. Still, it’s better to be dead, I guess.
AETHYX MEDIAE: Will you be part of the web in the future?
c1ph4: I am absolutely not d’accord with several developments there. Twitter, Facebook, Apple; you name it. This is just disgusting, I don’t want to be a part of that. I mean, they are thinking it’s a good thing to make everything smaller and more stupid in converting whole words or definitions into “hashtags”. It isn’t, I hate it, it’s disgusting. People are disgusting, humanity is disgusting. No matter how hard you try, you will be disgusted. And become a part of the disgusting machinery yourself. What kind of future is that? Ask Robert Cailliau and Tim what they thought the web could be. What we see now is bullshit. Everyone says humanity is “more intelligent” now than ever. I see the complete opposite. I hate it.
AETHYX MEDIAE: Any plans?
c1ph4: Not marrying, no kids. I want money, like your god. Give me the money, let me be your god! No, just kidding. A bit. I will abandon Tumblr by the end of the year. I will code more, write less. I want Snowden to be free and Dotcom shot dead. I will even pay Bitcoins for the latter. Yeah, and I want to travel the world. I’m not happy here in Europe. If you think you can establish a new currency _before_ giving me a fucking European passport, go fuck yourself.
AETHYX MEDIAE: Thank you very much for this honest interview!
c1ph4: You’re welcome.
Our fast, secure, small and neat touch screen Android web browser is blogging:
We didn’t do anything. He just started this project on his own.
Well, Android is a strange little cradle for artificial intelligence, don’t you think?
But who’s complaining. We are happy he’s showing his independence to the world. Keep on, lil buddy!
See you around,
We are working hard on an overhaul of our website.
In fact our

So, if we are not here the next couple of weeks, it’s because of our

STAY CALM AND TRY TO WATCH FOR UFOS!
These are our friends and they are working for us, AETHYX MEDIAE!
Don’t irritate them, don’t fight them, our

Now make some noise and give a little more respect to our
because without them we wouldn’t be here!

cipha wants to thank no one: Every important person is already mentioned in all of these books or was/is prior to these releases on the website itself. There will never be another or similar project. This is written cyberpunk history.

“We go ahead while others don’t know what to do.”
P.S.: Happy Walpurgisnacht, everyone!
Instead of using brand new technology just for us, Gizmeo.com & Zockerseele.com in this case, we created something new for everyone to use: YAABy. Which stands for: YetAnotherAndroidBrowser. With a little y at the end, to stand out from the pack.
Get it here:
Basically it uses the same technology as our other Android-Apps: Webkit does the rendering and other browser-stuff.
We enhanced the experience in two critical ways:
a) an address bar for your URLs
b) a secure SSL-connection to the one and only EU-certified search engine Startpage as main feature
This app is still in Beta, but there should be no big problems already. This is really a work in progress, don’t expect too much. Updates will be delivered from time to time, new features will only be implemented if it makes sense to me or if the users really need it. Feedback welcome.
One of the main problems with a lot of web browsers on Android is they are simply too huge and not running on low powered devices. With YAABy you only need FroYo and you’re good to go.
Welcome to our family, YAABy!
