    It's a sad day for mobile tech news. The famous leaker @evleaks, whose real name is Evan Blass, has officially announced his retirement. His reasons are something that most of us can relate to: he needs to replace his "leaking gig" with a full-time job that can actually generate enough income to support himself and his family.

    Between the everyday costs of raising a family and dealing with the difficulties of his multiple sclerosis illness, he simply wasn't able to make ends meet. This was even after he started his own website for the leaks. It's easy to understand where he is coming from, and although we are all saddened by his decision, we wish him luck and want to sincerely thank him for being the most prolific source of solid intel the mobile industry has ever seen.

    He explained his announcement during an interview with TheNextWeb. You can see the entirety of his email interview quoted in the thread below.
