There are several ways to measure a megabyte – If you calculate it properly, you have to know there are 1024 bytes in a kb and 1024 kb’s in a mb. Of course this means that you can cheat by saying it contains 1 million bytes, and thus sell poor mans’ megabytes. You can even say that a Kb is 908 bytes, if you really want to rip off customers. This is done by the drive makers. This becomes a quite glaring deficiency by the time we start talking gigabytes, and Creative (as well as Seagate) has just been slapped around the head by this, incurring fairly severe penalties for misleading consumers.
