1 Byte 1 ASCII character [a letter or number]
1KB (Kilobyte) 1000 bytes or 1000 characters [4 manuscript pages]
1MB (Megabyte) 1,000,000 (million) bytes [a novel]
1GB (Gigabyte) 1,000,000,000 (billion) bytes [20 encyclopedia 'sets']
1TB (Terabyte) 1,000,000,000,000 (trillion) bytes [small research library]
1PB (Petabyte 1,000,000,000,000,000 (thousand trillion) bytes [1/2 of all U.S. research libraries]
1EB (Exabyte) 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 (million trillion) bytes [5 x all printed material, ever]
1ZB (Zettabyte) 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (billion trillion) bytes [all the grains of sand?]
1YB (Yottabyte) 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (trillion trillion) bytes [angels dancing on head of pin?]
