What is the deal with Mega? (ne้ Megaupload)
As far as I understand it, there are two big selling points :
* no one can ever see the files you've uploaded. They're encrypted locally. So you could be uploading family pics, your mp3 collection, or Skyfall. All of which can be shared, if you give someone a key. Kim cannot be held accountable, and he can never divulge what you used Mega for, because he can't know.
* 50gb free space
Good luck trying to register. It's being hammered. No iOS app yet.
When I said shared with a key, I believe it's as simple as giving someone a link via email.
