comment Is it true that 1 MB can mean either 1000000 bytes, 1024000 bytes, or 1048576 bytes?
@kubanczyk Don't get me wrong, I /am/ a strong proponent of correct unit usage. Still, I don't think that "it's obvious". If it really were, there would be no questions as that one, right?

Maybe you should add, that when talking about data transfer rates (in bit/s), one typically uses base-10 prefixes, e.g. Gb/s actually means "one billion bits per second."

Yes, but only because their operating system doesn't use the SI prefixes "correctly."
