Kim Dotcom the man behind the file sharing website Megaupload.com has launched a new file-sharing and cloud storage serivce called Mega. Megaupload.com was an extremely popular file sharing website got itself into trouble when its founder Kim Dotcom was charged in New Zealand for copyright infringement. Exactly one year after Megaupload was shutdown, Kim Dotcom launched the a new service Mega.
Mega apparently is not Megaupload relaunched but apparently 'a completely new service'. It is interesting to see the nuanced term "cloud storage" being emphasized more than the term "file sharing" on Mega.
What does Mega offer?
With 50 GB free storage space, it is many more times more than any other cloud service offering. Dropbox offers 2 GB, Google Drive 5 GB and SkyDrive 7GB with their free packages. But Mega has no mobile phone support while all other cloud services have apps across all major mobile platforms.
But compared to Microsoft, Google and Dropbox, Mega will be a lot less trusted brand. This is more so after Megaupload was closed down.
