Megaupload founder creates new file-share service called Mega that will allow users to upload encrypted files to the cloud storage service. Kim Dotcom has certainly been facing a lot of grief for his previous site Megaupload. In fact, earlier this year Dotcom’s house was raided and he served some time in jail. Even after all of the legal repercussions, Dotcom announced that he was planning to create a new site that would offer one-click encryption. Enter Mega, the new file-sharing service from Dotcom. The basic mechanic of Mega will be similar to its predecessor Megaupload. Users will upload their files to an cloud storage service which will allow other Mega users to download these files to their computer.
