Google Conversion Madness

Google’s calculator is starting to bug me because it has some rather odd gaps. I finally decided to dig a little deeper. Take these conversions for example:

2 hogsheads in tierces – Works

2 hogsheads in tierces

1 chain in inches – Works

1 chain in inches

1 league in furlong – Works

1 league in furlong

1 MiB in MB – Fail

1 MiB in MB

MiB is likely the most common unit of measure in this list. It’s also IEEE and CIPM endorsed I’m perplexed why this doesn’t actually work. Besides for Google engineers likely using that more themselves.

I know some Googlers read this blog. Please forward this appropriately.
