Frank,

Interesting!

Found this after looking up size designations:

Processor or Virtual Storage

Disk Storage

· 1 Bit = Binary Digit
· 8 Bits = 1 Byte
· 1024 Bytes = 1 Kilobyte
· 1024 Kilobytes = 1 Megabyte
· 1024 Megabytes = 1 Gigabyte
· 1024 Gigabytes = 1 Terabyte
· 1024 Terabytes = 1 Petabyte
· 1024 Petabytes = 1 Exabyte
· 1024 Exabytes = 1 Zettabyte
· 1024 Zettabytes = 1 Yottabyte
· 1024 Yottabytes = 1 Brontobyte
· 1024 Brontobytes = 1 Geopbyte


So it's Brontobytes and Geopbytes that we can look forward to. Yottabytes must be old hat.

I keep hearing stats about the number of Exabytes of data available on the internet. However, how much are duplicates. Or even a rebroadcast of a blurb.

I once was looking up a product, based upon a PR release. I found 1000's even 10,000's of references. But all that I looked at were nothing but duplicates of the original release. I found Tweets, retweets, and every other system where folks just rebroadcast the same release notice. I even went to the manufacturer's web site and could not find anything about the product.

When you mentioned Yottabyte, I thought you said "Yadabyte", as in Yada, Yada, Yada! LOL, that's a lot of Seinfelds!
