Unless you're a binary-based computer, in which case it's a lot easier to
divide by 1024.

I presume it is for those who are not good with division ... dividing by
1000 is much easier than say 1024 ??

Most of us probably don't like the 1000mb = 1gb.

Since the drive mfgrs use decimal rather than binary, it is sometimes
a necessary evil, such as during capacity planning for storage.
