Heise.de keeps rocking! :-)
The German version has way more readers than The H. And we cover a much
wider range of topics.
The H faces the problem that they never reached the number of readers
they deserved. I had very little interaction with The H, so I don't know

The most recent (and thus last) article of mine that they translated for
The H was this one:
Google I/O: How to build battery-efficient apps
Although I thought it was a very interesting topic, it didn't yield a
single comment. Compare with the German version's 43 comments.
Comments mean page-views, which is a necessity for ad revenue.
