Forget Megaupload! Dotcom's 'Megabox' To Hit

By Oonagh Reidy | Tuesday | 02/10/2012

"This is what they don't want you to have."


Dr Dotcom is back.

And this time he's even more mega. And social.

"This is what they don't want you to have. Unchaining artists and fans. Megabox is coming soon", a YouTube video posted Wednesday by Mr Kim Dotom declared.

Controversial Internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom or 'Dr Dotcom', who was behind one of the biggest and infamous file sharing services, Megaupload, is about to launch a new free (and legit) music service with tunes from every era (including the 70s and 80s) and genre (dance, chillout, atmospheric and dark ambient) on board.

Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys, David Bowie were among the artists highlighted in 2:08 minute YouTube video posted last week, that has over half a million hits so far.

Megabox also lets members get social with Facebook, Twitter and YouTube integration, 'Chat' with fellow music enthusiasts, you can find out 'what happening near you' and have access to unlimited cloud storage.

It is also giving members (sign up to an account for free) access to 'exclusive' artists and also appears to be offering musicians a platform to promote their wares similar to MySpace, inviting them to "take control of your music career."




The 38 year-old multi millionaire, who resides in New Zealand and is currently under house arrest, has been charged with Internet piracy and copyright infringement. He is believed to have earned US$175 million since 2005 copying and distributing music, films and other copyrighted material, illegally.

He is also wanted by the FBI and faces an extradition hearing next year.

Megabox is due to be live by the end of the year.

New LG 65   New LG 65" Ultra High Definition TV, Complete With Pop Down Speakers: REVIEW
LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
