our android apps

This is a completely new field for us, but we are happy to be there: Right now it is also possible to enjoy our projects on Android devices!

play store logo

We made an app for Gizmeo.com (our gadget webzine) and Zockerseele.com (our video game webzine) respectively. These are available here:

Our first two official Android apps on Google Play.

Due to the fact these zines are those with the most visitors this step is quite logical of course.

What we can say for now is that these apps won’t be our last. Android is a completely new way to experience consumer electronics. It is very likely that we will write more apps. And of course these will also be stand alone applications which might not be directly associated with our new media ambitions. There is so much more you can code. If you find the time…

But remember: This is just a starting point. We begin to understand what Android does and so are these first two apps. Don’t expect too much of them, we are not backed by a mega corporation (which has its advantages, btw), so we are not able to pay for hundreds of programmers and stuff. This needs time. And these apps are just several weeks “old”.

In the meantime we hope to enrich your lifes even more. This a whole leap forward. We hope to keep up the pace. See it as a free & open surplus of what we do.

Read you soon,
all the best,
the aethyx-staff

You will also notice that part I to III is available regularly through Amazon now.

The release of the whole hexalogy will take longer as we intended.

Originally we wanted to release all six books and shut down the website cipha.net until the end of june 2013. But as of now we try to release these ebooks until the end of the year.

But this is a good sign: It shows that we have work. :-) So nothing to be concerned about. We are an independent publishing house, such things are common. ;-)

Happy reading! Looking forward to your feedback!

Kindest regards,

introducing jpcars.de

Another year, another project.

Let us introduce you to our brand new website:

http://jpcars.de!

In short, it is a weblog about Japanese cars.

I am a huge fan of these forms of engineering since I was a kid, especially when it comes to automobiles from Nippon. So, what I did was to set up a new medium because I thought I could give something back and also gather brand new information about this topic. It is the definitive way I work with texts in the age of the Internet.

The site is still BETA and has no design template yet. This will be done in the next couple of weeks.

So, have a read from time to time! I think this has potential like the stuff I do on Gizmeo.

See you around!

All the best,
the aethyx-staff

introducing ye olde e-shoppe

Today we would like to introduce you to our own eletronic shop:

http://aethyx.com/eshop/.

We are here to realize some projects. Let’s, finally, start with it.

Lots of information about our packages and other useful stuff will be published there. So visit this site frequently if you would like to stay up to date.

Currently we are able to provide the following packages: Starter and Professional.

Ultimate will come soon as the third and most exclusive package, so stay tuned.

If you are 16 or under, we will give you the Starter-package for free. Just send us a copy of your student card, please. It has to be valid, too.

Anyway, we would also like to wish our fans & clients Happy Holidays! It will be a cold Easter, so don’t forget the warm clothes.

All the best,
the aethyx-staff

[Update, 04.05.13]

We updated the page.

You will now find all three packages and their appropriate information. If you need something special, just let us know! Hope to hear from you soon.

media talking bs about all these hacks originated in China

“Hacking from China!”

…is the new overkill news media buzzword of the yet young year 2013.

EVERYONE ist being hacked: Microsoft, Twitter, Facebook, Apple, EADS, ThyssenKrupp, even your cat!.

And all of these hacks come from China. Of course.

This is ridiculous.

I mean: How do they know it’s not just spoofing to make it look like these hacks originated in the far east?

I think they just don’t have the time or interest anymore to search for the real reasons.

What I know: Most of our visitors speak Chinese. Our stats don’t lie. And I never ever would have imagined to make a project which will be read from there.

So, IMHO, I’m glad that the Chinese are there! I even enjoy their food quite often. I don’t have any problems with them and I think our Western point of view of these people is just full of prejudices. That’s it.

Nothing new here…

2013

It’s 2013, folks!

New year, new opportunities.

We changed our website a bit:

  • the search bar is now available in the main menu on top of our site. The former box was just too ugly with this huge search button
  • new main font: No “Nec Plus Ultra” anymore. We are quite happy with the brandnew “Zekton”. We hope you’ll like it too
  • new links: We added quite a few new links to our sidebar on the left. You’ll find direct links to popular tools like “Calibre” or some websites where you can publish your own Ebook for free

Upcoming projects:

“THE CIPHA.NET CHRONICLES IV” will be available soon. No definitive date yet, so stay tuned for more information to come.

FYI:

If you want us to help you in setting up a website/blog/tumblr as well, drop us a line! We are looking forward to help you in realizing your individual project. Believe us: It will be pure fun!

That’s it for now.

See you soon,
the aethyx-staff

our first official ebook releases

This sets a new milestone for our young publishing house: Our first eBook releases are out!

As you may have already read, our underground text project http://cipha.net will cease to exist in 2013.

This is the end of an era: 9 hard years of underground blogging, several design updates and a difficult platform transformation from Greymatter to WordPress in 2006; these are just some of the steps that had to be taken over the years.

But, fear not: The texts, 2.100 of them, will be preserved!

The first trilogy sums up 1.050 entries and they are already available, for a moderate price. See the following list for more information:

These eBooks are all DRM-free. No strings attached, you can remix all of them, just name the source.

Also, Xinxii is just the beginning. They reside in Berlin and are specialists in publishing eBooks for independent authors and indie publishers. Our next step is to transfer them to the Google Play Store, but up to this date it isn’t possible to upload them via their Java uploader.

The other three books will be available in spring or early summer 2013. So stay tuned.

Best wishes and enjoy reading,
the aetyhx-staff

[Update, 07/16/13]

As of now these Ebooks _are_ finally available via Google Play. Please check the links for each book accordingly.

aethyx.com: now with tumblr integration

As you may have already recognized, our website is pretty text-heavy. This might be of course because we are a publishing house; no gimmicks here.

But we are constantly in motion and want to show you this dynamic once in a while.

So, what we did today was quite simple:

We integrated our own Tumblr-stream, which is available here, in our sidebar.

You are seeing directly what’s going on there immediately right after Tumblr is updated.

Not too big an evolution, but a nice little feature for all our visitors and clients.

Hope you like it.

As always, leave any feedback in the comments.

Happy tumbling!

Sincerely,
the aethyx-staff

writers wanted II

We are still actively looking for new authors.

German is a must, but we would be very happy to have writers on different continents who are familiar with the language. Maybe your family emigrated and you still use German at home.

One of the trends we are observing for the last six to twelve months is that we get more and more readers from China. Even on our native German written websites like http://gizmeo.com/ (our gadget blog) and http://zockerseele.com/ (our videogame weblog). It would be great to have writers from there who are able to tell our readers what is hot or not.

If you are from China, you do not need to speak German of course. Our websites are bilingual from the beginning (German and English, most of our sources are from foreign countries like USA, France or even Japan). It is only that we have not so many constant writing authors, so we are not capable to offer the content in more languages. Natively you still can use Google Translate from within our projects and choose one of 65(!) different languages.

If you think you can help, just contact us and we see what we can do!

It will be a good practice if you are interested in doing new media. See it as your individual training in writing for new technology websites. Of course you can use our sites and your texts as a reference when looking for a “real” job in this field. Your texts belong to you entirely, no strings attached. You can even export them whenever and wherever you wish.

Find out about what we are doing here: Where?

Well, yeah, that’s pretty much it.

Hope to hear from you soon!

All the best,
the aethyx-staff
