Labels still matter.

Yes my developer friends, labels do still matter.  GB used vs MB used, or let’s round up to the nearest GB, instead of displaying the data value in MB, and the label in GB. Unless the expectation is every user will be downloading the library of congress monthly. #ConfuseAllTheusers...
