Nuh unh.

It's OK.  I grew up with computers so I acquired knowledge of all the bits and bytes stuff basically through osmosis, while you were already semi-decrepit when computers were invented, so it's a much harder struggle to integrate foreign concepts like that.  To this day you have a relationship with computers much like the apes have with the monolith in 2001.  But I understand, so I don't hold it against you.

I think it was more of "If you are going to advertise selling a HDD of 1 TB, then by god make it format to 1TB and not 900GB."
As soon as you put partitions and an FS on it the FS' advertised capacity is entirely outside the control of the drive maker. Also, and this is a big logical step for some of us, the drive maker is already advertising an entirely accurate capacity - it is the OS or app that introduces the shorthand. Further, it is the end user that fell on their head as a child and can't understand what the shorthand means. So, to sum up: if you buy a drive and can't fit everything you think it should fit, then you're gonna need a bigger drive.
