19 October 2007 @ 8:39Lawsuit: Not Enough Bytes

Canadian, David Bitton, filed a motion in the Quebec Supreme Court this past Wednesday that alleges that Apple’s iPods have 7.5% less storage capacity than advertised. Bitton wants a full refund on his 8GB iPod, or a 7.5% refund for him and all iPod owners in Quebec.

Interestingly, Bitton is a Montreal law student. One has to wonder if this is his senior project, or simply an attempt to earn bonus points with a professor.

Anyone even remotely familiar with computers knows that the advertised storage capacity of any storage device is the size computed as 1GB = 1 billion bytes and that actual formatted capacity will be less. Apple addresses the issue here. I believe that all hard drive manufactures even have a disclaimer on their packaging. No one is deceiving you, David.
