1: Your hard drive's space, the reason why your hard drive's smaller than advertised isn't because it needs space for "running the hard drive" or whatever (why would a hard drive need almost 35 gig just to run?). The point is that the manufacturer is using decimal notation, which means that 500GB (note that byte is a big B, while bit is a small b) is literally 500 * 1000 * 1000 * 1000. While your computer is using binary notation, which is 1024 * 1024 * 1024. So what the manufacturer says is 500 GB turn out that it's actually:
500,000,000,000 / (1024*1024*1024) = 465.66 GB
2: On the names of different multiples in binary, "kilobyte", is really 1000 bytes, because that is what kilo means. But most people use it as 1024, because that's how computers work, some workarounds have been suggested (see: kibibyte), but there still isn't any good solution for the semantics.
3: Ram and other storage, 1 terabyte is not a big hard drive, 1 terabyte RAM is a shit-ton. This is because RAM is ridiculously fast compared to a hard drive, but as memory gets faster, it also becomes a lot more expensive. This is why hard drives tend to be the biggest timesink in computers, since no matter how much RAM you have, the data still has to be moved from your hard drive to your RAM, this is why an SSD can be a great upgrade for your computer.

Binary is not a hard concept to grasp and most people do understand 01 or off, on or a string of 01's could mean a number. However, do YOU know why it's 1024 and not 1016 or 1008?
#127 - Chizypuff (05/17/2015) [-]
I never said it was hard to grasp... I just said most people don't know it
1024, 512, 256, 128, 64, 32, 16, 8, 4, 2, 1
10 000 000 000
Why the fuck would it be 1016 or 1008?

because it counts by a series of 01's in an eight number sequence instead of 10 to identify a number or a piece of data. You can do very little with a 4,2,1 bit sequence except for yes/no questions. It is 1024 because the power of memory is doubled every 2 years, but it could also be 1008 in the same fact you could take a smaller stick of ram and use it in parallel with a larger stick. In short it's 1024 because it counts by a sequence of 8 and not 10. That is binary. You missed it and your answer proves that you didn't have a grasp on the subject. Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, google him.

What the fuck? I was in a PC Networking/ IT class for a year and took a semester of Computer Science in college so I don't claim to be an expert... You didn't explain it very well at all though? I think what you are trying to get at is that Binary is typically seperated every 8 digits (00000100 00000000 for 1024) which is 256 bytes per section but that is not always the case. The fact that the power of memory is doubled every 2 years is correlation, not causality. What sizes of RAM would you put in to make 1008?
How does my answer prove that I don't have a grasp on the subject? I didn't understand your stupid pop quiz so I shouldn't go answering basic questions about binary?

I'm from Baltimore and I can confirm that there are still peaceful protests going on. The media doesn't cover it because there isn't anything exciting for them to report on from that so they go after all the degenerate fucks that are destroying shit. The peaceful protesters aren't even a part of it. They literally have done nothing wrong. The NIGGERS throwing rocks, looting, and rioting are the ones that have done everything wrong. Trust me there are good people in that city protesting in the right way. Just not that way.

No it is not.
Its "liquid cream" as the person above put it.
