I was aware of the inflated numbers for marketing hard drives. But I wasn't aware that Apple jumped on the marketing bandwagon.
(Apple adopt marketing terms? Never..)
Well, as I have a 10.6/10.7, base 2 is history, I guess.
I am going to keep the metric terminology myself. (MB/KB, etc.)
I had not heard that SI had adopted metric terms.. :)
Thanks for your thoughts! Its an annoying problem. Not a major issue.
Enjoy the Holidays!
