Why did apple make the iPod Touch's size multiples of 8? 8GB, 16GB, now 32G.
because it likes decreasing even integers and they already did 10?
because they use a flash-based memory rather than a hard disc drive like the old ones.
Because that's what flash-based memory does. Besides 2 and 4 GB (which the old nanos had), I'm pretty sure all flash is a multiple of 8.
Flash drives need to be in multiples of 8 (not sure why). Look at a memory card, it's probably 512mb (8x64), 1gb (1024mb 8x128), etc.
I know the Touch's are flash based but why does flash need multiples of 8. I'm gonna google it.
Also watch this.
It literally how you jailbreak your 1.1.3 iphone.
probably because all data is stored as 1's and 0's on disk and one byte is 8 bits bla bla bla...
google binary number system
If you think about it though, each is also x2.
8x2= 16x2= 32.
So the next Touch is gonna be 64GB. Lol that would be huge.
ya and if im not mistaken, its the same reason that computers have memory as multiples of 8...
