Kim Dotcom's new "Mega" cloud service
appears to be a hit. According to Dotcom over 1 million have signed up
for their free 50 gigabytes of storage. Although that is about 1% of the Dropbox user base
, it's not a bad start. From the article: "Mega quickly jumped up to around 100,000 users within an hour or so of the site's official launch. A few hours after that, Mega had ballooned up to approximately a quarter of a million users. Demand was great enough to knock Mega offline for a number of users attempting to either connect up or sign up for new accounts, and Mega's availability remains spotty as of this articles' writing."
