94 123 KB = 94.123 MB
1 000KB = 1 MB

If you wanna be very specific then yes.. The standard these day's for memory is usually rounded off to an even number.. (Example: 128 megs of ram, 256 megs of ram, 512 megs of ram etc..)

Memory is usually measured in megabytes and isn't rounded off (512 megs of ram is not rounded off to 500 megs) However, large capacity storage is usually measured in gigabytes and is rounded off (e.g. a 4.096 gigabyte hard drive is usually considered a 4 gigabyte hard drive).

I think he was joking, because computer works in binary, so 2,4,8,16,32,64,128,256,512,1024, so 2 to the 10.
and 1024 is the closest you can get of 1000 with binary computation

There are 10 types of people:

- people who understand binary
- those who don't

I'm probably the biggest newbie in terms of computer in there...scandisk is probably the biggest thing I've ever succes doing on my computer...and question for the experts...what does Ko, Octet, Guig and Kb means? And what does that do?

Sorry for my ignorance, it compensate for many other things!

For those non-geeks who can't understand binary:

1 = 1
10 = 2
100 = 4
1000 = 8
10000 = 16
100000 = 32
1000000 = 64
10000000 = 128
100000000 = 256
1000000000 = 512
10000000000 = 1024
