AETHYX MEDIAE & Android stuff

 1 2 3 Next »

Dear readers & customers,

bit by bit we’re starting to remove all of our advertisments from our websites.

Streetart - Stop-Bar

Firstly, we never made any revenue from these. We’re serious right here.

Secondly, we never were convinced that concepts such as “Google Adsense” or “Adshot” are here to suit small indie publishers.

Thirdly, the “DSGVO” is doing its thing to make it harder for us small publishers to support big advertisement corporations as these never did comply with EU regulations and thus their code snippets are illegal, buggy & not up to date.

Fourthly, but not least: these are too old concepts and are rests of a TV and radio era. We from AETHYX MEDIAE never supported that, by the way, and thus don’t think it will be too much of a hard step for us.

As we’re living and working remotely from anywhere on this planet in the 21. century, there are more agile and end-user friendly ways of supporting websites.

Following is a list of payment options we support.

From the beginning we supported “Flattr” for example, a Swedish microdonation service which started in 2010. Through this service alone a user/reader/fan can tip our websites in an instant.

All of our websites support “Bitcoin” since 2014, a decentralised cryptocurrency from 2008/2009 which will some day (with other derivates) take over traditional, state-backed currencies. We added a button on every website we built where a user receives our donation address by a simple click of this button. Keep in mind this protocol is not officially supported by the W3C (WorldWideWebConsortium) and thus is not working in every browser or smartphone. In this case just copy our Bitcoin address please from your browser address bar and make your donation.

It’s more easier using the “Ethereum” button, if you want to spend Ether: firstly we designed and implemented this button ourselves, find the project and source code here. Secondly you will be redirected to “Etherscan.io” directly and may use an official link or a QR barcode directly to make donations.

So far these will be our current, one and only future ways of making money out of our projects.

For small indie online publishers “Google Adsense”, etc. never were an useful option. Our most popular blog project for example, gizmeo.eu, accumulates 15 readers per day at the moment and thus it never, since 2010 as this medium started, accumulated any kind of valuable revenue. So f*** that! ^^

We are heavily dependent of donations and strongly advise you to donate if you read and/or use our websites, apps & source code repositories!

Please take into consideration: as an indie publisher we never may guarantee that a medium exists for long if no one is interested in it. To this date we did so much to develop the new media ecosphere further but never got anything back to make a living. As we’re also pretty long in this game, since 1999/2000, we don’t think this will be the future we may support any longer.

GRANDS. DON’T. COME. FOR. FREE.

Keep rollin’ & take care,
the aethyx staff

Dear readers and digital wanderers,

we are happy to announce that we were able to stockpile our Android app portfolio this summer.

We want to tease and celebrate this announcement with the following screen shots:

Kryptowiki is one of our youngest projects and mainly a Wiki powered by Mediawiki software; the same software which runs the popular Wikipedia, but fully dedicated to cryptocurrencies.

It is intended to be a valuable encyclopedia for German speaking interested persons and parties. We had a huge problem in finding such a resource back in the days (it didn’t exist), took all of our expertise and created it in 2017 on our own. Find more information about this project on our “Where?” page.

What this Android app does here is not only bringing Kryptowiki to all those millions of Android devices in the world but mainly to be a companion for tracking and creating/editing the wiki pages from anywhere you are with your smartphone and tablet.

Find the features of this app as an overview here:

* optimised for Android 8.1 (Oreo)
* compatible down to Android 2.x (Froyo)
* App is themed: that means in colors and style it is based on the web project
* fancy, asymmetric and semi-transparent app icon
* main features completely usable within the app: login, watch list and random article
* built-in button for manual updating
* Menu navigation in German, English, as well as in the languages ​​of all German Neighbouring Countries: Danish, French, Italian, Luxembourgish, Dutch, Polish, Czech
* Chromebook support
* Lightweight: App is less than 900KB

As with all our apps it’s available via the official Google Play store too: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.kryptowiki&hl=en_US.

We hope you enjoy this app as much as we do and wish you all the best in creating and contributing to one of the most exciting free & open encyclopedias of our century,
all the best,
the aethyx staff

Good day!

It’s summer plus it’s 2017, so it’s about time to update our Android apps the following weeks.

We would like to begin with an already uploaded update of our inhouse web browser YAABy.

YAABy icon

The newest version here is able to display favicons and is now also usable on all the coming Chromebooks. You’ll find all of the information regarding this release on the official website: yaaby.eu. Just click on the banners from Google Play Store & Amazon there to arrive directly at the product detail page. We hope you enjoy this newest version as much as we do!

Right now we’re programming the updates for JPCARS.de, gizmeo.eu, zockerseele.com. These will be available the next two weeks or so. In sum it’s an update for Android 7.x.x (Nougat) and some code cleaning. These will be the last updates also before the official release of Android O by Google. We hope you like what you’ll see and as always…

…if you want to support our work, please flattr us or donate some Bitcoin! The appropriate buttons are shown on every single page here on aethyx.eu. Every donation will be fully spent inhouse to keep this project running and save us nerves and financial drama in the near and far future. It’ll also secure our unique idea of an indie web publishing house which we think will become more and more important regarding current political and media situations worldwide.

That’s it from AETHYX MEDIAE for now,

only the bestest to all of you,

the aethyx staff

Approximately one and a half year ago one of our authors hacked together an Android app for FEMEN. The nature of this movement involves bare human breasts which is the main reason we weren’t able so far to distribute it via offical app stores like Google Play.

FEMEN Android app icon

But fear not, the author released the app already into the wild and it’s actually available via GitHub, see here:

https://github.com/aethyx/femen.

Licensed under the GPLV2 which means the digital world is invited to add code as well as features at any time to develop this project further.

Most of the time so far the releases here are maintenance releases: updating the app to run under the most current Android OS version as well as updating the resources used here. Social networks take down FEMEN pages quite often for no reason. To find and implement new content as soon as possible is one of the main tasks for new versions so far.

Please share and include the app into the open repositories where possible!

Also, don’t hesitate to join the project if you’re a coder or have new ideas for this app!

There should be more movements like FEMEN out there. The world would be a much better and more intelligent place for all of us. Rock on, girls!

Cheers,
the aethyx staff

Dear readers,

firstly, a Happy New Year! Make your wishes come true!

Secondly, all of our Android apps except YAABy were updated shortly:

Get our Android apps via Google Play Store.

What we completely dismissed is Facebook. We deleted all of our Facebook sites associated with our projects (for obvious reasons meanwhile). What you still can do is like the articles inside our apps and on our web pages, of course. But Facebook is there just another social site of many. That’s the way it should be, we thought.

Thirdly, we made them Marshmellow-compatible, which means Android 6.x.x support. According to our experiences from our inhouse testers the Chromium engine running our apps is much more stable and faster then in previous app versions. Try it, feel it! It’s always best to upgrade Android apps to the newest versions anyway.

If you want to do us a favour (upgrading apps is a time intensive and nerve eating process), use Flattr as well as Bitcoin underneath this post! We. Need. More. Alcohol!

See you around!
the aethyx staff
