Kim Dotcom's new service called Mega has launched in beta. Mega is an encrypted online storage service, similar to Microsoft Skydrive, Google Drive and Dropbox. I've signed up and will post a few screenshots.
After sign up it takes a couple of minutes to set up your encryption key, and once that is done you are ready to rock and roll!
The Mega service gives you 50 GB of storage space for free, and there is the option to upgrade to one of three "Pro" tiers.
Interestingly the pricing of the Pro services is in Euros (not in US dollars or pounds sterling). I'm going to upload some files to Mega and see how the free service performs.
I'm interested in seeing how Mega compares to Google Drive, my current favourite cloud storage service. So far I have had no problems with Mega and I've been using it from my Samsung Chromebook. I'll also be trying to pass files directly from my Google Drive directly to Mega to see what happens.
[Update] I've noticed that trying to upload files directly from Google Drive doesn't work. Mega tells me it would take an infinite amount of time and sings me the Adam West Batman tune.
As usual, feel free to leave questions and/or comments below.
