    I just signed up for a free account and it comes with 50GB! They do not seem to have a Mac OS app, though I just installed it on my Note2. Just wondering what others think of it.

    I have it. The speeds are really good, we use it for our ROMs. Although I wouldn't use it for anything majorly important (I recommend Cloudit for CloudApp instead or Google Drive) since they're after that guy. :rolleyes:

    Mega.co.nz business is set up differently than the old company, plus it has been a disaster case for the americans (serves them right) so I wouldnt worry about loss of data this time round. Its innovative and faster than anything out there, it just needs clients for all platforms before it really takes off. I think once everyones 50gb 2 year free storage from dropbox runs out (numerous phones gave this away) its gonna really pick up.

    Not bothered with it because the security implementation is awful despite their bogus claims about how safe all your files are. The product is as half-assed as you'd expect from a well known conman. Hey, the site's not called Mega.co.nz for nothing ;)

    Nowhere in my post did I mention New Zealand's internet laws so I can't say I'm too sure what you are on about either.

    Because it spells out "conz", I was trying to be funny, perhaps I failed :p

    ah I see it now, my bad. Kim Dotcom isn't as much as a crook as the the Americans that are after him, they are the ones that shouldn't be trusted. Hes actually doing good for NZ, keeping our politicians honest (as a politician can be) I can see Mega being a force in the future, just my opinion, respect all others that think differently.

    Mega has always been slow for me. I get around ~800kbps on my 105Mbps connection. People should host all their files on Google's servers...and developers should too. That would make ROMs a billion times easier to download.

    Oh yeah, no one is as much of a crook as the US Government, but at the same time Kim Dotcom is guy who has been convicted of cracking and insider trading so he's not so great himself. Certainly not the kind of person I'd trust with my files.
