Dear readers,

it’s finally spring and we thought about being especially kind this year in giving away our eBooks for free:

our eBooks as seen in the Moon Reader app for Android devices
Our eBooks collection as seen in the “Moon Reader” Android app

You’ll receive two editions of our cyberpunk anthology here: one ePub version for reading on all electronic reader devices available as well as the Kindle edition which is only accepted by Amazon devices.

Just drop us a line:

info@aethyx.eu and include the roman letter for which edition you want to receive the eBook in the subject.
Soon thereafter you’ll receive your two free copies delivered for free to your inbox.
Hint: it’s only possible to retrieve one eBook of the complete hexalogy which you decide in sending us the roman letter from I to VI.

Happy reading!

Tenderly,
the aethyx staff

Dear readers,

calling an entity independent always means to keep the little power you own to yourself. It will never pay out for you in the end to surrender to yourself, a partner, a family, or, in the case of Facebook, to a dubious mega corporation which doesn’t give a shit about privacy and security, turning human beings into products and earns shitload of money in selling your personal data via advertising. That’s also why AETHYX MEDIAE never held a Facebook or Twitter account.

However, two billion and 130 million people (March 2018) on this planet already surrendered. Which represents 30% of humanity, ignoring age and nationality as well. These 30% literally are owned by Facebook. They gave away their interests, their social circles, their privacy and much more, to be exploited on a daily basis and provided a simple stupid feed, a neverending stream, with stuff they shouldn’t bother. This is the bad state in which we are now in 2018: social network addicts anywhere on this planet, earning nothing for providing personal data and being tricked year by year in spending more and more of their precious time inside a closed centralised web application which is designed in a way to be enhanced by the behaviour of its users only to be more addictive in the near future (keyword A/B testing).

Time for a little hope, won’t you agree?

Thanks to the Cambridge Analytica data scandal which popped up the last weeks, where 51.300.000 Facebook users were exploited illegally by a far-right data analytics company from the UK, the public finally recognises how dangerous Facebook really is. Horrible suspicions arose from these accusations: not only were voters in the US manipulated by targeted advertising created by this data but also in the UK while the “Brexit” polls took place.

Humans in the current mental state won’t change without being hit hard by a stick, so it seems.

By the way, the NSA scandal made public by another whistleblower, Edward Snowden, is not even four years away. Already 2014 people who seemed to be awake showed what alternatives we could use instead of data monstrosities like Facebook. Here is a neat screenshot of alternatives in case you forgot:

social network alternatives by prism-break.org

By clicking on this image you will reach the overview with working links to these systems directly.

What we need urgently right now are more decentralised applications run by smaller companies and individuals. Most of these systems provide features you never heard of which are incredibly useful in enhancing, not castrating, your digital life. Interconnections between systems is also possible, something Facebook completely forbids and tries to control with their half-hearted APIs. Furthermore, these social network alternatives are so sophisticated these days, you’ll be surprised about all the eye-candy and stability. There simply are no reasons anymore to join Facebook today. You see: where is the problem in switching?

In case you need help in setting up one of these social hubs just drop us a line: info@aethyx.eu. We won’t charge a cent if you’re aged 16 or below.

What you need to understand here: you can’t change the world but yourself. Time to start already.

Warmly,
the aethyx staff

“Free your mind. And your friends will follow.”

Happy New Year to y’all!

We’re starting the brand new year 2017 with an exclusive sale of the first commercial project we did: zockerseele.com.

Soon we’ll start auctioning the complete project, but until this unspecified date we’re trying to find a new owner via our common channels.

Bidding will start at 7.500€. First come, first served.

zockerseele.com snapshot

And here are some highlights you’ll get for those bucks:

  • project’s existing since 2005, already 12 years old now
  • 3 URLs: zockerseele.com, zockerseele.net & zockerseele.de
  • layout, design, graphics, etc. included
  • 5.300+ (German) entries about every video game topic you can imagine
  • 1.86 million visitors to this date…
  • …as well as 1.4+ billion page views
  • currently 200-300 visits per day
  • site statistics with databases included
  • size of all the files: 2.16GB

We’re doing this for several reasons: firstly, see it as an experiment. Secondly, no one has the time or ambition to write entries anymore. Thirdly, we want to expand more on the Android platform. And fourthly, we need money for developing and promoting these apps.

If you’re interested, drop us a line: info@aethyx.eu. The project will be sold to the first one who accepts the fee of 7.500€. In this case we won’t do an auction. So just do it and do it quick!

It was helluva fun to maintain this project. But in the end, it’s time for a split and try something new.

Thanks for reading! Spread the word!

Kindest regards,
the aethyx staff

Good day!

In celebrating our fresh new look we are going to give you 10% discount on all of our products!

Our offer will be available until November 15th.

Additionally we are currently looking for free lance open-source Android developers who would like to share their expertise on new projects we have in mind. Come on board and we’ll see what happens!

Finally the hottest summer in Europe is over, have a nice autumn 2015!

If you’re not happy with your cloud storage provider (e.g. OneDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.) because of the ongoing debate about internet surveillance, we are finally able to offer you some neat & secure cloud services by ourselves.

What we use right now and it’s perfectly working is ownCloud. It’s not only the most popular open-source cloud storage service (AGPLv3), it’s also one of the most updated and maintained.

The most important features for choosing our services are:

* SSL protection when logging in via your client or web interface (Comodo RSA)
* encryption for all of your files inside your cloud, too

Despite that you get traffic for free, CalDAV and CardDAV support, a document viewer as well as a rich picture gallery bundled with your account.

Due to the fact that we have to pay for webspace as well, we can’t offer you this service for free like the giant corporations. We can’t maintain a big server farm, unfortunately.

So here is how much cloud space you’ll get for your buck:

1GB – 1€/month
2GB – 2€/month
5GB – 5€/month
10GB – 10€/month

The appropriate client software is available (mostly for free) for Windows, Mac, Linux, as well as iOS & Android.

It’s possible to pay via PayPal (not anonymously) or Bitcoin (100% anonymously).

If you’re interested, drop us a line: info@aethyx.eu!

Kindest regards,
the aethyx staff
