Ok, always been confused on this, and I opened it up to the office got mixed results.

What is the difference between GB Gb and Gb, MB Mb and mb and KB Kb and kb?

GB is a GigaByte. Gb is a GigaBit. Those are very different units. (1GB = 8Gb) Some technical circles I've worked in may use an uppercase "G" or a lowercase "g" to differentiate between the decimal (10^9 bits or bytes) and binary (2^30 bits or bytes) definitions but that's splitting hairs and rarely used because it can easily get confusing.
