Some say DC is the best, Some say Marvel is the best,

But deep down we all know, 1GB is 1024 MB not 1000MB

    You can resolve the ambiguity by using kibi, mibi, gibi... noted XiY instead of XY. XY means 10^(3*X) of Y un every other domain, why not keep it that way and use the other prefixes to signify 2^(10*Xi) of Y ? That's what some do, and I find this solution to be the best, especially XiY which is entirely unambiguous (since there are known abuses of XY, it is now an ambiguous notation, *sadface*)

    @CptFox Those terms sound idiotic, therefore no one is willing to use them.
