    It dpeneds on who you ask really:

    Base 10 is easier for people to talk about, while base 2 is what computers use, so sometimes there is a "miscommunication". Example using the "giga" or "gibi" prefixes:

    Base 10 would be 1000000000 -- [10^3]x3
    Base 2 would be 1073741824 -- [2^10]x3

    And of course we all assume the octect system is in play as well. See also:

    The norm is to use powers of ten for everything except address spaces. That is, you count memory with powers of two, because that is how it is addressed; but disk space is counted with powers of ten, bandwidth is counted with powers of ten (10 Mbps ethernet runs at 10^7 bps!), etc.
