“Summer time, and the living is easy…”
Dear readers and customers,

So we’ll keep this entry as short as possible:

Android. Debian. Upcoming revolutionary open hardware movements like RISC-V.

Happy summer holidays,
the aethyx staff
since yesterday the NATO sees cyberspace officially as a new territory for its operations. This is no good news for users of the interwebs.
I) Why is this a problem?
Currently the NATO exists of only 28 states out of 192 worldwide. To most people this “intergovernmental military alliance” lost its meaning completely at the moment the Berlin wall fell. Before that, the world was balanced by self-knockouts of two countries only, USA and Sovjet Union. The world lived in peace, or at least it was recognised by most people, after the fall of the Iron Curtain 1989, until September the 11th, 2001.
Unfortunately a lot has changed to the worse, not only regarding web topics. People are executed or jailed for publishing independent texts online and offline. Religious conflicts worldwide backed by military-industrial complex structures, most of them from NATO countries, arose and killed hundreds and thousands of people. The conflict with Ukraine is mainly a NATO, not a Russian problem. Former Warsaw Pact states were tricked in joining NATO first before becoming a full EU member. Al-Qaida became ISIL will become what-ever. The modernisation as well as the future development of new kinds of atomic bombs. And so on.
As you can see there is absolutely no advantage in being regarded an “operation territory” by NATO. We don’t know if they were just stupid or megalomaniac when they proclaimed that publicly. You as an internet user should be prepared for the worst; remember the Snowden files since 2013, please, if you didn’t believe citizen journalists before this American whistleblower already.
II) What can I do now?
The worst you could do: Going offline.
What we regard since several years is the fact that the internet became to powerful for the global elite to control and they want to trick you in leaving it to them what’s good for you. Believe us: we are here since 2000 already and if you don’t do it yourself, then someone else will do it for you! The internet is no TV is no radio! It’s too huge, too complex and no organisation or system, we repeat, no organisation or system on this planet to this date is able to process all data here!
That’s how Apple tried to take your mobile internet. That’s how Facebook took all of your friends as well as what you and your loved ones like. That’s why Microsoft bought Skype, Nokia as well as LinkedIn. They want you to believe that they own anything already and they keep selling you this lie. Yeah, then see for yourself how huge the web really is.
You know, we still remember the promises of the golden internet times 1999/2000 for anyone and AETHYX MEDIAE thinks this time is still to come! Don’t leave it all to giant corporations! The dinosaurs will vanish anyway! Did you know that Microsoft even didn’t see the WorldWideWeb coming? Imagine: in 2016 you as a user are enough experienced & skilled with web knowledge than you might think! Do it on your own or leave it to us! Check out our product range:

III) Aren’t you just panicking?
No, definitely not. NATO today is good for nothing. It never was, actually. If you didn’t see or experience this on your own between 1989 and the end of 2001 we feel very sorry for you.
IV) Didn’t they forget to mention space?
Yes, they actually did. We believe that happened on purpose. We currently live in world with five realms: water, earth, air, space and cyber. We will never forget those stupid “Star Wars” plans by certain American politicians. In fact, one of those aggressive star wars systems is currently sold to Poland and will be operating there 2018. No one in the EU wants such systems and those are not needed. Regarding the tensions between Brussels and Warsaw at the current time, we, IOHO, think we lost Great Britain and Poland already to the USA. The EU won’t be able to change that. Shall they leave the European Union. For Europe, Russia was never an opponent! In history.
With the recent news that NATO, which and with it all of its member states failed on only one day in 2001, we don’t believe it’s a good sign now being regarded as target(s) when using internet and/or web services. Our article here pointed out our angriness as well as some hints for you as a user or small corporation to avoid future complications. That’s just our opinion but AETHYX MEDIAE as an independent publishing house thinks that as long as NATO exists there will be stupid wars for generations, no matter which realm. And you know who profit the most from those mass killings? Only the 28 wealthiest states on this planet. Time to become activists, people!
