On megabytes and gigabytes

Joseph created his Gmail account today.

When he saw the front page, he thought Google was providing 2344 megabytes of storage to be shared among everyone in the world. That’s hardly anything, he thought.

In fact, Google gives that amount of space to each account.

Then he said, “I thought megabytes were WAY bigger than gigabytes.”

When we told him it was the other way around, he said, “I thought there are like 1,200 gigabytes… I mean MEGABYTES, in a gigabyte.”

Joseph is awesome.
