From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
      (Or "Mb") {megabytes} or {megabits}.   When referring to
      the size or data transfer rate of a storage device which is
      accessed in multiples of eight bits (e.g. {RAM}, {hard disk})
      this almost certainly means megabytes, but when referring to
      the data transfer rate of a communications system it probably
      means {megabits}.   Some years ago, it is claimed, "MB" always
      meant megabytes and "Mb" meant megabits but recently this
      useful distinction has been lost.
