It's not wrong, MB, GB etc. can still be used to represent 2^x sizes /

I guess so. Shit is confusing. It should be a unified standard across the board.

8. Just like my internet.
50 Gb = 50,000 Mb

Internet speed is measured in bits (small b) and in such cases I've never seen the use of powers of 10

And the proper unit would be Mbps or Mb/s which also makes me doubt you have 50 Gb/s.

10. This thread... C-Can.. Not... understand..

11. terra = 1x10^12
giga = 1x10^9
mega = 1x10^6
kilo = 1x10^3

that being said, one gigabyte must be 1000000000, so why is one gig 1024mb?

No.
My internet bandwidth.
Australia has limited bandwidth from most of its ISP's.

Because in the world of computers the power of 2 is so lovely (:

And exactly cause of this we have Gi, Mi, Ki etc., but G, M, K... are still in use.
