1.5TB Hard Drives?

It may be silly, but I feel ripped off because the 1.5TB hard drive that I just bought only has 1.36TB of storage space.

Never mind that even 1.36TB is a massive amount of storage space to get for ~$150...

It just seems wrong that I get nearly 10% less than I was led to believe I'd get. Like buying a 10ft tape measure that only goes to does this happen?

Yeah, yeah, I know there is some geeky technical reason--but I think it is bad policy.
