Creative Sued for Base-10 Capacities On HDD MP3 Players

SoapDish SI (528 comments)

So, these companies are actually losing court cases for using the proper units? That's up there with robbers suing the house owners for injuries they get while breaking in.

Everyone knows (at least outside of USA) that M = Mega = 1000000, and so on. This is standard for all units of measurement, even bytes (yes, I know that's less well known).

I'm outraged.
