Also, he's maybe got something else in the works?
megabox Kim Dotcom Is Still Teasing Megabox, Promises Itll Drop Before the Years Out

A teaser of the service.

Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom sure seems to be keeping busy down in New Zealand. A series of late-night tweets suggests that his long-awaited music service, Megabox, is on track to launch sometime before the end of the year.

However, the way this story played out is a little wacky, as things involving Mr. Dotcom are wont to be.

Last night, Kim Dotcom tweeted a teasing message about an unidentified project in the works:

The Next Web took this to be a hint regarding the timeline for Megabox, the new music project Mr. Dotcom has described as “a site that will soon allow artists to sell their creations direct to consumers and allowing artists to keep 90% of earnings.” He’s also promised there’d be more updates on the project throughout 2012, making the assumption the tweet was Megabox-related a fair one.

But Mr. Dotcom proceeded to tweet the Next Web’s article and add:

So is Mr. Dotcom launching some other unnamed and heretofore un-hinted-at project besides Megabox?  if so, our money’s on that “doomsday device” the FBI reportedly believed he had at the ready to nuke everything on Megaupload’s servers. 100% Safe & Unstoppable!
