Seagate settles "gigabyte" lawsuit

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, Nov 3, 2007.

  1. This is about the argument over whether a "gigabyte" should mean "gigabyte"
    or "gibibyte".

    Appears it's cheaper to give all the complainants a 5% discount than to
    fight it out in court
    <http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/11/02/seagate_offers_refund/>.

    Looking at the settlement notice, they're not relenting over the definition
    of "gigabyte" (thank goodness), they're just going to add clarificatory
    language about likely discrepancies in displays of available storage by
    computer systems.
