This is because when you make silicon transistors that are that small there is a probability that you will have bad sectors. this is why there are intel chips with different numbers of cores as option. They produce all the chips with the same cores but some come out with faulty cores even if they did everything perfectly.

With an intel chip it is an expensive enough item to disclose the amount of breakage on the packaging. With usbs they are so cheap that they don't do this.

Also usbs can often have hidden sectors that are used by the operating system of the usb. Some usbs that sell as 16 gigs actually have closer to 32 gigs.
Sounds like a DOJ coverup. Worth looking into. Sector microanalysis perhaps? What is a nano technology
This. A lot of the limitations on various pieces of technology are artificial and enforced through small hard/firmware modifications in the factory. This is either because of flaws in the fabrication processes (ie quad core CPU is defective so just cut two cores off and package as dual core) or because it's cheaper to buy parts in bulk and just make one thing without the need for different tooling or components (ie firmware limitations on a 32GB flash drive to make it 16GB).

I can't even say I'm really mad about it. The alternative is more waste which is shit for the environment.
I just bought 10 USD 512 GB USB sticks, awesomeness.
how much whos the connect
