Creative Loses Missing Gigabyte Suit

Their premise was that 1GB was one billion bytes 1,000,000,000B rather than the 1,073,741,824B it should be.

Good see the consumer win this round, but $35 for just 73 MB?  Seems like quite a large payout compared to the original size of the machine.  Oh well, they’ll just pass the price onto their other products

I find Creative to be a sony ,arrogant and brash,even more so than sony,i hate them,i got their speakers only 1 works,but i found the real creative after i had bought them.
