Where will we get all these bytes? Will our children be working the data mines?

Hey, zetabytes don't grow on trees, you know.

You might want to flip the write protect tab. I would hate to see it overwritten on accident.

OK, I'm using 7 proxies so when I download 1Gb does that count as 1 or 7 Gb?

According to the second sentence of the article, a zettabyte is a million terrabytes. Which is an exabyte. The fact checker apparently made it one whole sentence before quitting.

terabytes, even. Apparently there was some smarm-karma feedback on that smarm.

I wonder what it was in 1996
 
2012-05-30 06:07:38 PM  
We Brazilians laugh at such numbers.

Or about 2.7 gig after subtracting out porn, spam, and Google ads.
 
2012-05-30 06:40:33 PM  
And every ISP will be required to store all of it for a year or four, depending if Congress gets dumber.

But I just bought a 1TB hard drive. IT CAN'T BE OBSOLETE SO SOON

Zetta Bytes? Sounds like a snack invented for big black women.
 
2012-05-30 08:28:37 PM  
By 2020 it'll be chicobytes, by 2025 it'll be harpobytes, and by 2030 the internet will be up to grouchobytes.

/I know

There's some sort of Elcor porn joke here but it's up to someone far wittier than me to come up with it.

I was thinking that a million terabytes didn't seem like much...
