Patreon, Merchandise and Computex 2018

Computex 2018 will be here sooner than you think, and we’re incredibly excited to once again have a crew on the ground, asking the questions that are relevant to the SFF community. Last year was the first time we were able to attend the conference, and because of it we were able to create a bunch of news posts, a number of exclusives, and literally hundreds of caliper shots. This is not to mention the long string of in-depth reviews we were able to do as a result of reporting and relationships that originated on the show floor. This is especially impressive given the fact that SFF Network is a fairly small …

Happy Merry Holidaymas and 2018 Here We Come!

First of all, thank-you to all of our fantastic readers and community members for following our escapades and reading our ramblings throughout this year, we couldn’t have done this without you. It has been a challenging year, with changes in staffing, changes in stress levels and overall, changes in the SFF landscape. New projects were launched, some succeeded, some failed, but overall, SFF grew because of it. So, whichever holiday you do or do not celebrate (gotta be politically correct these days), we at SFFn and Minutiae Media wish you all the best for the end of 2017 and the …

SFF Network Swag Store is Live!

You asked, and we delivered… SFF Forum swag is now available, permanently! When we ran our previous ‘swag’ campaign, there were many who missed out, or wanted to get even more. In light of this, we’ve (rather delayed, mind you), re-launched the swag store! We will have reasonable, no-nonsense pricing for all of the items, and we’ve used Teespring in order to provide the most reasonable international shipping rates that we can find. There’s been a lot of thought expended on our part in order to provide the sorts of items and price points that will be of interest and …

Computex 2017, Here We Come!

Readers, As you may be aware, over the past few months we’ve been working hard to figure out how to get SFF Network to Computex 2017 as a press entity. Our attendance of the conference would enable us to provide you, the reader, with up-close and personal coverage of all the SFF goodness we can find, at one of the most consequential events there are in the world of small form factor systems. It would also act as an opportunity to twist a few arms, and remind the big players in the market that SFF is (in fact) a thing, and that we’re …

Small Form Factor is dead. Long live Large Form Factor!

To the community, It goes without saying that smallformfactor.net has seen a huge amount of success as of late. Traffic on the news site and forum continues to grow steadily, and our community has never been larger or more engaged. We couldn’t be prouder. However, as a result of this, it’s become clear to the whole team that there’s nothing really ‘small’ about us or what we do – and, if anything, we’re set to get bigger and bigger in the future. Small is lame. Small is sad. Big is the future! Because of this, we’re really excited to announce …

Shirts, Logos, Domains, Referrals… and what’s been hiding in the minutiae, until now

We’re at CES! (And a quick-but-important forum update)

We’re incredibly excited to be able to share not one, but two exciting updates with our readers of SFF Network, as well as our community at SFF Forum. First: although listeners to our podcast (Low Volume) will have already heard of this news, SFF Network will be on the show floor at CES 2017 in Las Vegas, with our newest writer Drew Duncan scouring the conference for announcements and news that’s specifically pertinent to SFF. With press credentials and camera in hand, this is a fantastic development and opportunity for us, as we’ve previously only been able to rely on second-hand reports …

Podcasts!

In this day and age, with the many, many types of media available for consumption, we have been producing content in two forms – written articles and audio only podcasts. Admittedly, the podcast side of things has been difficult to keep up with, with various factors negatively affecting the regularity with which we post episodes. [mks_separator style=”blank” height=”2″] Today I’m introducing; LowVolu.me 2.0 – A New Beginning! [mks_separator style=”blank” height=”2″] In all seriousness, we’re making some changes to the podcast format, and I’m excited to update you on these. Firstly though, some things will stay the same, namely; Joshua, James and …
