Tech Companies and False Advertising

Image

 

You know when you buy a pen drive and get less storage than you bought after you open up the drive in your computer? Like getting 900 mb when you buy a 1 gigabyte pen drive? Well would someone please tell me why this has been allowed to go on for so long?

My question is why don’t these tech companies make 1.1 gig pen drives so when you plug it in you know you are getting 1 gig. Makes sense right? I mean how would you feel when you buy a can of mushrooms only to get baked beans when you pour out the contents of the can right into your soup? 

Funny thing is I haven’t heard about any mass agitation relating to this issue. Yeah so what if you give up a few megabytes here and there. I mean you just bought a 320 gigabyte external hard drive right? That’s not the point. I paid for 320 gigs so give me my 320 gigs in full or else, my dear solid state drive manufacturer, tell me I’m buying 319 gigs, for a reduced price of course and I’ll have no problem with doing so.
