<<Thats not 6GB...>>

Technically, by the SI system, 6GB = 6000MB and 6144MB is 6GiB, there is currently no real push to change to the correct standard though as it would only confuse people.

hehe, standards should be followed, look whats happening with Microsoft in Europe.

By not following the standard, Google (Calculator), Microsoft and others are creating confusion because of conflicting messages. I'd expect Google to be correct on the matter, but then again, if the majority of your users are Windows users, you might aswell target to them.

Yahoo has unlimited space. I use them and have never run out of space.

Yahoo! says that you've got unlimited storage, but in reality the spaces is circa 20 GB. I know someone who tried to get to the limit
