Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's the following:
8 bits makes 1 byte.
1024 bytes makes 1 kilobyte.
1024 kilobytes makes 1 megabyte. 1,048,576 bytes
1024 megabytes makes 1 gigabyte. 1,073,741,824 bytes
1024 gigabytes makes 1 terabyte. 1,099,511,627,776 bytes
1024 terabytes makes 1 petabyte. 1,125,899,906,842,624 bytes (1.12 quadrillion bytes)
1024 petabytes makes 1 exabyte. 1,152,921,504,606,846,976 bytes (1.15 quintillion bytes)
1024 exabytes makes 1 zettabyte. 1,180,591,620,717,411,303,424 bytes (1.18 sextillion bytes)
1024 zetabyte makes 1 yottabyte. 1,208,925,819,614,629,174,706,176 bytes (1.2 septillion bytes)
Teeny bit old. Dont'cha think?
Hey, why start a new subject if it's already been addressed? Just making sure I had my right measurement for zettabytes and yottabytes.
Wow, that's alotta bytes
Just saying that it'd be a better idea to make another thread
Haha nice! seems like we have a "Reviving Threads Spree" lately!
I like it!
^^^ everyone know about 1TB drives around here
There is such a thing as a YottaByte which is after EttaByte which is after ZettaByte which is after PetaByte which is after TeraByte which is after GigaByte and so on. The highest civilian HDD is 1.5TB/TeraBytes released by Seagate in October of 2008, which is equal to 1524 GigaBytes.
Wow... Someone should close this topic less they want to see it show up again next year.
Hey bro, it wasn't a pointless post.
I still love how this guy registered just to resurrect this thread....
lol FAIL. XD
ive seen 2TB HDD at some stores
just looking in the paper western digital has a "sharedrive" 4TB
its an external though not to mention $1489
they tend to have relativley big External HDD and not internals
Well i was just browsing google for hdd related stuff and found this threa. Its quite interesting So i just though to bump it and thats why i just joined. Well these days its not a big problem of storage and hdd's are present at dirt cheap. Another site which i found on google -
ASUS dual-core netbook
That small netbook have 350GB! pretty cool. Even my ps3 have 320Gb hdd (well it's 120GB ps3 slim but i changed the hdd)
well done... thats the second time this thread as been resurrected.
Why flame? Who cares if its been "resurrected". He put across a valid, on-topic point. This is an interesting thread and some people just get too obsessed with keeping things 'clean'. Chill out and stay on-topic. It's not like it's messing anything up. He's just adding too it. You on the other hand are just being an idiot and should restrain yourself from trying to be superior to everyone else.
On an on-topic note. Are there any plans in creating bigger drives? Getting closer to the next step from TB?
P.S. I don't care if this gets locked after my post or I get banned or given a infraction. Because I think some people need to stop being stuck up.
you sir, are a magic man that can tell the future, you even got the timing right
Remember not that long ago that a 40GB drive was huge. And not long before that a 1GB drive was seen as huge. And not long before that you have a few mb.
Give it a few years and you will have much bigger programs (some games now 20GB+) starting to push 1TB drives. few hundred TB drives will eventually be standard and we will be looking at PB drives as being big, like TB drives are now.
There are always plans to create bigger drives
