AETHYX MEDIAE: EU URL switch complete


We realised our plan as promised and as of a few weeks we’re finally available at our European URL!

Please update your bookmarks as soon as possible as this action will support our intentions in reaching the top spots again of all those search engines out there.

What didn’t change, however, is the way you can reach us: All of our contact data, e.g. Email addresses, stay the same. It’s easier to use our fast secure contact form anyway. See here: Hear from you soon!

See you around in beautiful Europe!

Hello dear readers!

We would like to inform you about the fact that we moved our Gadgets weblog to a whole new domain. It now resides under

Visit the website clicking the hyperlink in the left sidebar under “Web References”.

All the articles, feeds, pages, images, etc., will be redirected and all search engines out there should change their respective listings the following weeks automatically.

This is one of our most important steps this year: As a young an independent publishing house from Europe with European roots, European heritage and defending an European future plus European culture, it is our duty to move away from commercial domains and use what’s representing us the most.

The most recent example is, where our indie Android web browser YAABy is blogging.

We would be happy to see other publishing houses from Europe doing the same. As of the end of this month the domain will become 10 years old already! The thing is: To this day only 3.9 million such domains were registered. What a pity regarding 500 million residents in the EU!

We hope to be an inspiration to follow. Hint: Also will become as soon as possible.

Become independent from Verisign and the USA! Use more domains from your respective territory! Support more regional developers as well as companies!

Thanks for listening.

Kindest regards,
the aethyx staff

time to wake up

Hello dear readers,

firstly we have to admit that we’re not here to release global political statements. Our intentions as well as our plans tell us to leave those topics alone, but our time as well as our global state tell us the opposite.

What we are trying to say today: We currently live in a complicated world where we have to cope with 8(!) world wars at the same time. As always, as history told us wisely, the media doesn’t want you and your family to know this. Keep in mind: These wars, and there are much more to come, will occupy the lifes and minds of your descendants for at least



It’s an easy calculation: You’ve only seen the prologue what was started 13 years ago. This fucked up world state will now last


human years.

Are you ready to head into the future like this? Don’t you think the stupid white man should stop reproducing? Are you ready for what awaits you when you are dead?

Don’t get us wrong here. Every human should have the opportunity to find salvation. But it’s up to you and what you do with your life. What you do will come back to you, even after death.

Of course you may live on, watch TV, hear radio, consume instead of create, be a slave to the system.

But never forget: The system will always be here. It’s up to you, if you will end up as a white pig or do something yourself. Use your creativity! As a human, you’re unique! We have the tools, we live in the 21. century, be active!!

That’s the reason why we’re here: AETHYX MEDIAE. Independent Semantic Online Publishing. Made in Europe.

Pour ceux qui ne ont pas remarqué: Allah est entré Europe.

Ce est sur la 7e Janvier, quand “Allah” n’a pas obtenu ce que nous appelons ici en Europe “satire”.

nous sommes charlie

Vous savez, le sujet dans lequel Kurt Tucholsky était un professionnel. Pensiez-vous que ce était une coïncidence que le président américain Barack Obama ne était pas présent? Pensiez-vous que cette guerre qui a commencé en 2001 sera terminé après quelques années? Détrompez-vous.

Mais que pouvez-vous faire maintenant? Eh bien, ne dites pas que nous vous avons donné aucune indication. Vous savez, le truc d’être actif et laissez votre passé passive. Nous avons essayé de l’expliquer, voyons ici.

Il se agissait de guerres numéro 8 et peut-être 9. Commencer à compter. Konbanwa.

Only the bestest & good luck,

maintenance and repair


Currently we are working heavily in the background on several Lollipop translations to get those Indie ROM trains running.

Furthermore, the year just started and our friends and families are still our top priority.

In the meantime: We recommend closing your Twitter and Facebook accounts. Some independent sources say hackers are on their way (Lizard squad and history in the making, you know).

Anyway. Keep your heads up as well as your eyes and ears open.

The bestest,
the aethyx-staff

happy holidays!

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.

After Zockerseele, which is all about video games, as well as Gizmeo, which is all about gadgets, we ported, which is all about Japanese cars (obviously), to Android: is now on Android
(Click to show app in Google Play Store)

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,

interviewing c1ph4 from

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 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 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! 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.


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.
