While Snow Leopard counts in powers of 10, like humans do, Apple’s own software download page still counts in powers of 2, like computers (and those who program them) do. I noticed this because I was freaking out when the new Mac OS X 10.6.5 Combo Update clocked in at over a gigabyte while downloading in Safari. A gig. For a software update. The mind reels. But then I noticed that it’s a mere 977.21 MB on their web page. Phew. I thought we’d broken the gig barrier, and wasn’t ready for it.
