Yes, looks like you'll be signing yourself up for a spam fest. Suggest you use a throwaway email address just in case you sell your soul to the spam devil.

The only fly in the ointment is that the answer they want you to choose is incorrect.

The correct answer is there are 1024 gig in a tb.

In the same way there are 1024 meg in a gig, and 1024 kb in a meg, etc, etc..

Actually, no. Hard drives are measured in base 10 using the SI units. The IEC units you refer to (1024^3) are GiB (Gibibytes). Thus 1000 is the "correct" answer.

Yes, I hate it too, but its what we have.

This isn't technically correct! They are right by strict definition - this has been officially (re)definied so that the unit names are SI compliant. What you are talking about are actually known as gibibytes and tebibytes - not that I actually know anyone who uses these!

HD manufacturers have always used decimal rather than binary definitions for space, claiming its because HD have no addressing restrictions to force sector capacities to powers of two, although the alternative argument is that is it to trick less tech-savvy purchasers!

Oh, beaten by pgregg!
