Whne I was in school, there was 1kB and 1KB, 1kB being 1000Bytes and 1KB being 1024Bytes (2^10 Bytes)...

Nowadays the difference is the point of view. From the marketing view, 1GB is 1000MB, though from the IT view 1GB is still 1024MB...That's why the real size of HDs is less than it's advertised for, from IT view (calculating still with 2^10 for 1KB, not with 1000).
