Not entirely sure I would want to trust my data to someone with such a - how can I put this - 'chequered' history.

For me, as a part-time DJ, this amount of storage is attractive as I'd only be uploading sets which I'd be sharing anyway so, for me, using Mega isn't a security issue

With the armed raid on Kim Dotcom that destroyed his previous business and the disproportionate prosecution of Aaron Swartz a clear picture is emerging. US prosecutors are out of control, protecting particular US business interests using whatever excessive powers they deem fit. Trusting in the flawed belief that corrupt behaviour will go unnoticed, and that public opinion can just be brushed aside. The authorities would like to paint Kim Dotcom as a corrupt individual who needs to spend time in jail. The reality is that he's just a good self-publicist. It's the people he's up against that you need to worry about.

Kim

Just saw the photo of the "drone" he claims to have found in his garden. Is this real or self-publicity?

Wait and see

Let's go out on a limb here. Does anyone seriously believe that this is anything but a 'chance it and see' business model. Good luck to him if he pulls it off but I'm making a guess that he thinks he can cross sell or some other revenue stream which doesn't exist yet will end up generating profit.
The figures simply don't add up.

Traffic

If the site generates traffic then advertisers won't be able to help themselves. It's pretty much a sure bet.

Kamikaze Haka?

What I really want to know is whether he is linked to the 'Al Qaeda' Maori division or not? :-( If he is, then we must all back the U.S. to the hilt in their efforts to grab him wherever he hides. After all, we are either with them or with the terrorists. Or is that the other way around? *confused*
