    The actual capacity is always lower because companies say that 1GB is 1000MB when it is actually 1024MB.
    + system files.

    Reasons:

    1. 8GBs means 8,000,000,000 bytes; whereas 8 GiBs (the definition computers use) is 8,589,934,592 bytes.
    2. 500 MBs is used for the system partition, and is not accessible for media storage.

    Edit: You beat me

    The "operating system" persay takes up quite A bit of space so expect less than what it actually saus for devices such as the ipod touch
