Default Those three annoying questions ANSWERED!

What comes after Trillion? What comes after Petabyte and what comes before a nanometer? I finally got so annoyed and found the answers to these questions.

What comes after a Trillion:
http://www.jimloy.com/math/billion.htm

What comes after Petabyte and what comes before nanometer:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yotta

Try to pronounce anything above decillion correctly. It's funny as hell to try.

Thought some of you guys would appreciate that as the world of Technology is getting smaller and bigger all at the same time. HDD's are getting bigger in size, while CPU's are getting thinner to the closest nanometer!

Nice finds. The only one I wasn't aware of was what comes after Petabyte.

I found out that "..." means "and so on" in math.

What I couldn't imagine is a database with 1 Yottabyte!

That's 1,000,000,000,000,000 OR 1 quadrillion Gigabytes!
