www.Megaupload.com now offers 500MB of upload space for users to share files with others. How in the world could they give so much?
We will host your file forever, until it is unused for 30 days. If nobody downloads your file for 30 days, its deleted automatically.
To make things more unbelievable, they are keeping the file there forever or 30 days at least. They only have so much storage on their servers. I could see a lot of people abusing this service.. Heck, soon you do NOT even need to buy a server to share big files. I can bet that this company will quickly run out of business. Don't know how they could afford 25 unmetered servers at Ev1servers. This is surely going to have a negative impact on the web hosting industry. Someone shed any light on this? They are really raising the stakes against other competitors such as yousendit.com rapidshare.de

It could be a loss leader.. if your company is large enough, 25 servers is nothing. Plus, you can fit about a TB of data in one server, and not everyone will use a full 500MB. Even if they did, you could fit 2000 users on one server @$250/mo.
