    I understand why, but this has always bugged me too. I wish when they advertise 16GB or 8GB they would actually include that much storage for your music/videos/apps. Sure it would mean shipping a product that has MORE than 16GB so they could put all the system files and what not in the "other storage". Also I know that you lose space when the partition is formatted, so I wish they would ensure that the actual formatted space was truly 16GB (or 8) by creating a larger storage in the first place. End of rant.

    its because apple use commercial gigabytes which make the capacity look bigger than it actually is and some of it is used for the firmware

    they should still add in some extra space for the firmware either that or they should just advertise the 8GB moddle as a 7GB one and so on for the rest of them it would make a lot of customers happier lol

    It's just like when you go buy a hard drive. You don't get the full amount of storage after the system files are in place.
