Many thanks for sharing the new system - I'd no idea it was coming! When does it come into effect, if it hasn't already!
Will suppliers have to quote sizes in both terms for a lengthy period of time whilst people get used to it?
I suspect it will leave many people, expecially those on sites like this who may be struggling with English already, extremely confused and they will stick to the old nomenclature!
I don't know. I just copied the page. The main point was that, even if you see Mb in ads for computers, the proper term has always been MB.
I guess in popular usage, kilobyte is always going to mean 1000 bytes or 1024 (2^10) bytes depending on the context. Same with the others. This is only important in specialised areas in the IT field where you really need to know if 1000 or 1024 is meant. When I was studying IT about 8 years ago, these terms were around, but we never used to talk about 'kibibytes', etc, unless we were being pretentious or pedantic. And I'd never do that!
