stupid people who know nothing about computers are probably the ones who took this to court. This does explain why some companies define 1GB=1 billion bytes (on Apple iPod case), but this could be viewed as Microsofts fault in some cases if an OS viewed 1GB as equaling 1,000,000,000 bytes in fact the only reason this passed may have very well have been do to the fact that all OS currently available define 1GB as 1073741824 bytes. Now, I just need to create an OS that views 1GB as 1,000,000,000 bytes then submit this as evidence next time this kind of lawsuit comes up and hold the bases for the case null and void therefore throwing out the case and making it impossible to bring any case of this kind to court. Now, if WD defined 1GB like Apple does would that make them unresponsible and also isn't Apple sueable since the HDD size is off along with every computer maker since it is common knowledge that the measurements differ from maker to OS? I hate it when stupid cases like this pass then so many other cases could be brought to court when it's a matter of not being knowledgeable enough to know these things god I knew about the difference when I was 7 because I asked the computer lab teacher about the discrepancy and odd sizes. Now, if I plat dumb does that mean I can sue as well for my area?

Who would sue over something so stupid? This is definitely a case of RTF box or manual. Laughing
