    I have an iPad 16GB and it says "Capacity 14GB"

    It should be 16GB right? So if I purchase the new 8GB iPod touch in September it's only going to be 6GB as opposed to 8GB?

    Actual formatted capacity is less than total. 14GB is normal.

    As I recall, an 8GB iPod touch has about 7Gb of useable space.

    It is 16GB but Apple measures the capacity using decimal system (base 10) for iPad, iPod, iPhone etc.

    Whereas on your Mac for example it uses the binary system (base 2)
