I realise that everyone is in the same boat, but why does a 32GB Touch have 29.96GB Capacity? iPods have always been like this, true, but HDDs sizes are generally more fluid, with say an 80GB HDD varying from 75GB to 85GB from manufacturer to manufacturer, so itmakes sens that on such iPods, you see a deviation in actual size. But flash memory is always pretty accurate, certainly to within a few mb. The 2GB difference is pretty shocking... that's space for 10 TV shows, or 350 songs. Why wasn't it called a 30GB Touch, 15GB Touch, and 7.5GB Touch. And how on earth have they managed to lose 2GB from chips that come in multiples of 8GB? Surely impossible? Is it something sensible, like they reserve a portion of memory as a swap file? Seems unlikely since it already has 512mb of ram. Or have they just ordered custom flash memory, perhaps in a cheaper non standard size, then rounded it up to a standard size? I wouldn't mind so much if all models had lost the same amount - 7.3GB, 15.3GB, 31.3GB. I dunno, seems a bit off. Is there a technical reason that Apple have chopped off the capacity? Or is it just cheapness? thanks.
