Are you going to include some meta analysis like the number of
"techies" that use units incorrectly whilst also claiming to be

MB vs mb - the latter always means millibits.

Bytes are 8 bits. Always were, always will be.
Anything else will render their meaning bit set to 0.

Even the worst pedants will accept variations on the use of K (1024
also Kelvin) for k (1000) as often these are misused.

PS I note a certain large ISP has just announced a cloud based email
service with 30MB of outgoing message size and 3GB of storage.
