I, for one, found the change beneficial, if only for dealing with consulting clients who don't even understand mathematical bases, much less how computers work. When I install a 500 GB hard drive for them, I like for the Finder to show 500 GB as the capacity. It's just one less thing I have to try and explain to them, thus I get to avoid some blank stares or little insinuations that I am trying to rip them off somehow (e.g., I am charging them for more than they actually received).

For those of us who do understand how these things work, just make the adjustment in your head, or run this guy's script to change it to what you find "correct". But really, what is "correct"? As a wise man once said a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away:

"...many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view." --Obi-Wan Kenobi, 4 ABY

It's not a bug. It's an intentional change by Apple. Not a bug. While some may not welcome it - some do. Us correct terminology (previous poster)
