Mega.co.nz CEO Vikram Kumar (Credit: Mega.co.nz) The future of secure, private e-mail doesn’t lie in Silicon Valley, or Silicon Alley, or even in the Northern Hemisphere, but in New Zealand. At least, that’s what Mega.co.nz Chief Executive Vikram Kumar wants to turn into a reality. After Kim Dotcom’s Mega shook up the secure storage world, offering a mind-boggling, industry-leading 50GB of encrypted free space, the company startled the world again by announcing that it would be building an encrypted e-mail service — but only after the unexpected closure of Ladar Levinson’s Lavabit. In the wake of the unexpected secure e-mail service closures by Lavabit and Silent Circle, what does secure e-mail even mean? From his home in windy Wellington, New ... Read More »

Switched On: ­­­Behind enemy lines

Each week Ross Rubin contributes Switched On, a column about consumer technology. This week marks the ninth anniversary of the column. A decade ago this month, and a year before the debut of Switched On, Apple made the decision to release iTunes for Windows following what was reportedly a profanity-laced debate among Apple’s executive team.

However, sometimes companies see an opportunity to plant seeds in the gardens of their competitors for a variety of reasons. For ... Read More »
