    I was just wondering how much space the OS takes up on the 64GB iPod touch 3rd gen. How much actual memory is available to use? Example my ipod classic 80GB actually has 74GB of space. Is it the same with the 64GB iPod touch, where instead of 64GB's it's actually 58GB's of free space?

    Yeah, roughly 59 is available for use on the 64 model. That's why I always buy bigger than what I need.

    When you buy any device (iPod, Hard Drive, etc...), you are technically buying 64 billion bytes of storage, not 64 "GB" of storage... I think it is BS, but it is just a marketing thing...

    If you do the math:

    64000000000 X 1/1024 X 1/1024 X 1/1024 = 59.60 GB

    It is BS, but what sounds better in an ad? 64GB or 59.60?

    no because back in the day of 20MB hard drives, it didnt matter if we lost a few KB, now we got 2TB hard drives and now we're losing up to 100GB's. It's bad but it's probably too late to change all the names of the hard drives to the actual size of them.

    It does confuse people though, how many times have i seen someone try to return a flash drive or mp3 player because "they were not promised the right amount of megabytes".
