Gigabytes Per Tablespoon

September 18, 2012

Google's search bar is quite versatile. Besides returning (usually) relevant content from all over the Internet, it can act as a calculator, give you your public IP address, and perform unit conversions. For example, how many megabytes are in a terabyte?

...Wait, what?

I suppose there's not really a standard unit for measuring data per volume. Myself, I prefer to measure it in Libraries of Congress per bushel.

(Google does get it right if you capitalize the units.)

(I'd also like to point out that Windows Powershell has none of these problems.)
