I bought it recently (Saturday 28th June) so does this mean I'll be able to upgrade to 2.0 for free?
"This" and "it" aren't really enough information.
You should have waited my friend.....
I had posted a picture but then I realised it had personal stuff in it so I removed it and then my laptop died. I'll post it in a little while.
Here it is:
Seeing as how this is the iPod touch forum, I'm guessing...
it = iPod touch 32GB
this = "the fact that he bought the iPod touch within 14 days (arbitrary) or the 2.0 update".
I figure that they'll do the same thing they did with the January update. Can't remember the details, though.
Sounds to me like its means it has the January Software update included in it... Not that you'll get the 2.0 for free.
All right, thanks.
o wow 29.96gb when it claims 32 i see that the os takes space but why more than the 8gb ? the 8gb is acctualy 7.71 or something like that why does this os take up 2 gb+ ? strange
I think it's because a 32 GB isn't a 32 GB flash, it's actually 2 16 GB flashes. maybe it has to have the OS on both of these? IDK, It's the only reason i can think of but then again I'm not the one who makes these things :\
It's because computers and iPods define GB as being 1024^3 bytes whereas marketers define GB as being 1000^3 bytes. The difference is approximately 93%.
Take a look at all devices that have storage memory. There's always a statement that says "1 GB = 1 billion bytes".
Didn't know that but now I do. Good info.
It's not the OS, it's the fundamentally flawed manner in which drive/memory manufacturers represent the space in a number a little easier to digest for the average consumer. 1KB is actually 1024 bytes, but for simplicity's sake, they represent 1KB as 1000 bytes. Big deal right? So you lose 24 bytes. But once you start to get to the higher capacities, the difference becomes quite obvious:
1GB = 953.67MB usable space (–46.33MB)
80GB = 74.5GB (–5.49GB)
100GB = 93.13GB (–6.87GB)
160GB = 149.01GB (–10.99GB)
500GB = 465.66GB (–34.34GB)
1TB = 931.32GB (–68.68GB)
