No matter how hard you try, it keeps coming back..
Like the undead...
It's blantant misrepresentation of sale. If I buy an 80 gig drive I do so thinking I will be able to store that much information on it and its the reason I would buy an 80 gig drive before I'd buy a 74gig drive with all things being equal-price, performance,etc.
and that's why they are being sued. 80 gig hdds should be 80 gigs worth of operational stuff to .... people ....who dont understand the naming and computing stuff behind the scenes.
This debate has been beaten to death. Those of us who have been around forever don't seem to see the problem. Those who are relatively new to computers and those who don't understand anything about them at all seem to have a problem with it.
A 2x4 isn't 2" x 4", a 5.0L ford(302CID) is not 5.0L, many other products are not the dimensions they are advertised as being.
Get over yourselves and get on with your lives.
