@evleaks fund is live (Medical support fund for Evan)
Thanks to Evan ‘@Evleaks’ Blass tech fans have gotten an early look at some high-profile smartphones and tablets, usually months before they’re officially announced.
Now, after two years of tweets, the tech journalist turned full-time leak artist has announced he’s giving it up.
Evan Blass, who earned a reputation for putting out legit leaks, says he’s quitting because leaking photos and spec sheets on Twitter had proved near impossible to monetise.
He told The Next Web he had tried sponsored tweets, accepted donations and pushing folks towards his website, but found users had little incentive to visit after seeing his pics on Twitter and across the web.
So, as a result, Evleaks, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis a decade ago, is Retiring.
I call on all in this Tech Community who have used images from @EVLEAKS and or used his content for the last to years to build your tech sites and give us all something to write about to get the word out.
This indiegogo campaign will help Evan get the proper medical care and treatment he needs to return to the best health possible and possibly one day make a return to this tech community.
You can help by sharing the campaign, Donating to the campaign, or just getting the word out.

OnePlus customers go to Change.org out of frustration
It looks as if the OnePlus saga has taken a new twist by making the government aware of the issue.
We have seen customers file complaints with the FTC and now to see this change.org petition is really not a good look for the company OnePlus.
What do you think about this recent development?
And do you think the issue is getting better or worse?
Let me know in the comments.
On another note we have purchased a OnePlus device directly through the company….. Why you may ask. 1.) people said because we purchased ours from ebay we havent had the real OnePlus experience.
2.) The device we purchased wasnt directly from oneplus.
Ok fair points on both.
And no the company had NO Idea we purchased the device and we had a family member purchase it so that OnePlus doesnt know who which order it is so they make sure its a good phone. We are getting one luck of the draw like anyone else and will report on the device as soon as it comes in which should be end of this week or beginning of next. Cant say what process the order is in. I dont want to tip our hand to OnePlus.
If the device is good with no issues I will say so. If not… I will also say so.
Then there is no debate. Ill go through RMA is bad and… Will video each process. And the public will see either good or bad. Its that simple.
See you soon.
More devices show up with new defects from OnePlus
Twitter its a thing in 2014. While OnePlus continues to try and censor its forum members, they have started to take to twitter and have posted screen shots of PayPal disputes and defective phones.
OnePlus has been answering to other press outlets lately claiming they would never charge for a warranty return, Yet images on twitter today of emails from OnePlus doing exactly that have surfaced.
Also on twitter are more screenshots of PayPal disputes as people are realizing they are not getting help from support and want their money back.
Here are some images from the past day.
Make sure to follow us on twitter @tktechnews as TK will post each image and retweet each image or issue you are having.
Censorship in 2014 is much harder with social media.
