You have it backwards, I think. A gigabyte is 1000 megabytes, which is 1000 kilobytes, which is 1000 bytes. A kibibyte is 1024 bytes, or what we commonly refer to as a kilobyte.
when we say Gigabyte... we think of 1000MB.. but it *should* be pronounced Gibibyte. a real Gigabyte is 1024 Mibibytes.
kibibyte = 1000 bytes
mibibyte = 1000 kb
or do i have this backwards... either way we're all technically wrong
This is how hard drive makers always win the "1 GB = 1000 MB" argument, because they're technically correct...
