Unfortunately it's not very impressive, because they've messed up the abbreviations. For example they say mb = megabits and MB = megabytes. In fact m = milli (one thousandth) and M = mega (one million times). So the site is just going to confuse people further.

Yes, I agree with roseway, they have been rather naughty using lower case prefixes-- the only prefix that does not require an upper case initial letter is kilo- which can take either case! Also they don't seem to know about the binary definitions being kibibyte, Mebibyte, Gibibyte etc (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kibi )
