The initial value is 12.0, the resulting is always =\x00\x00\x00\x00
Even if I put something bigger or smaller.

Subject: Re: HBase thrift API - Mutation store a float in a column
HBase stores values as byte arrays. When a float value is converted to byte, there is a possibility of data truncation.
I guess the precision loss that happens due to data truncation might be the reason for getting the same value 0 repeatedly.
