Months of constant Megaupload controversy, video of the raids leaked, Megaupload owner Kim Dotcom released and most all of the charges dropped, and many many more other news surround the controversial file storage site.
The new “Mega” is now officially online!
Users will get 50 Gig of free data storage! So far that tops any “cloud” service to date. You’d have to pay quite a bit to get that much storage with services like Dropbox, Rapidshare, Amazon, etc. Plus no one in their right mind would use rapidshare anyhow, there is nothing “rapid” about rapidshare.
So head on over to Mega today and give it a try, I personally haven’t tested it yet but will see how the speed is and how sharing fairs for the new reincarnated Megaupload
Video of the raid on Megaupload’s founder Kim Dotcom’s mansion.
For more than six months there have been claims and counterclaims about what happened in January when New Zealand police raided the mansion of Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom. Now video of the event has been released to the public and it includes helicopters, armed officers, dog units and multiple police vehicles – Hollywood style.
Anonymous have raided many government sites and taking them down as a response to Megaupload being taken down.

FBI website crippled by Anonymous led retaliation to Megaupload raid
The websites for the US Department of Justice and Universal Music Group were among the first to go, with the sites for US Copyright Office, Warner Music, BMI, and RIAA following suit shortly after. At around 7:40 PM ET, FBI.gov finally went down.
Ongoing attacks have also been waged against WhiteHouse.gov, the official site for the Executive Branch of the United States.
“It was in retaliation for Megaupload,” Barrett Brown confirms to RT. A frequent collaborator with Anonymous, he is mastermind a separate campaign aimed at attacking Congressman that support the SOPA and PIPA legislations.
Seems Anonymous is definitely on the warpath.
