    If you mean 10000mb, its not.

    1024mb = 1gb

    10240 mb make 10gb. Some people like using the 1000mb=1gb method to make it simple...

    10,000MB in the industry, in reality it's actually 10,240.

    u can't say Mb or mb, Gb or gb

    Gb means gigabit,

    means
    1 GB= 8Gb
    1 MB= 8Mb
    1 Byte= 8bit

    But I'm sure most of the time when people say mb/Mb they refer to MB.

    Don't think about it so much and use the 1000MB -> 1GB conversion, it'll only do your head in.

    The hosting industry standard is 1000MB = 1GB.

    thats primarily the SI definition of kilo which stands for 1000.
    But in computers, operating systems and software use KB = 1024 bytes, whether its disk storage or memory.
