* Alex Smith also explains if you want to get technical a capital B means bytes and a lowercase one means bits (bits are used for transmission speeds while everything else uses bytes for some reason).

* Tom K. states there are actually 1000 bytes in a kilobyte And 1000 kilobytes in one megabyte

* Alex Smith explains to tom that's only what hard-drive manufacturers use. Which is why your computer usually sees it as a smaller drive than what they sell it to you as.

* Tom K. states actually there are one thousand bytes in a kilobyte and 1024 bytes in a kibibyte

* Tom K. refers to the Latin meanings of "kilo-" and "kibi-"

* Tom K. states, hence, there are 1000 grams in a kilogram, and 1000 pascals in a kilopascal, and 1000 hertz in a kilohertz, not 1024

* Tom K. states its a common misconception
