[ann] About Yahoo Mail


Recommended Posts

Yahoo just started to increase the capacities of their mailbox.

Now, you can have 100Mo of mail for free.

Better, you can send a 10Mo-file with a mail.

Tomorrow, all of the mailbox should have the 100 Mo.

If you want more, you can pay for 2 Go.

Great news, isn't it ?

MiB = Mebibyte

Mb or Mbit = Megabit

MB = Megabye

IEC international standard of 1998 suggests using special prefixes for binary multiplies used in data processing and transmission, i.e. kibi (1024) instead of kilo (1000).

Note the distinction between a megabyte (about one million bytes) and a megabit (about one million bits). A megabit is abbreviated as Mbit (preferably) or as Mb with a lower case "b". There are eight bits in one byte, so a megabyte (MB) is eight times as large as a megabit (Mb or Mbit).

>> so does 1 mebibyte equal a megabit?

i think for most people yes

the only difference is if you are a hard drive manufacturer, or just about anyone who wants to con you, then a megab* would be 1000000 times the bit or byte.
