The mighty voice Of Mr Dot Com is back folks http://www.computerworld.com/article/2863957/kim-dotcoms-mega-to-launch-anti-spying-call-and-chat-service.html
Kim Dotcom, founder of the file-hosting service Mega, is preparing to launch an encrypted video-calling and chat service that will shield its users' communications from government surveillance.
"Mega will soon release a fully encrypted and browser-based video call and chat service including high-speed file transfers," Kim Dotcom said in a tweet.
Kim Dotcom is positioning the service as a more secure way to chat and collaborate online free of government surveillance or spying, partly by virtue of Mega being based in New Zealand. Kim Dotcom has been teasing the app for some time, though now it appears nearly ready for prime time.
"No U.S.-based online service provider can be trusted with your data," Kim Dotcom said in a separate tweet. "They must provide the U.S. government with backdoors," he said.
Documents leaked last year by former U.S. National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden have indicated that the governments in the U.S. and in the U.K. have accessed user data from online service providers.
This guys proving a major a wind-up to those in the spying fraternity
