A trillion web pages

Filed under: Technology; Author: Les Bain; Posted: August 1, 2008 at 11:47 am;

Google announced that there are now over a trillion web pages, even after the duplicates are eliminated.

I have a hard enough time with numbers already.  Let’s review:

Value SI
10001 k kilo-
10002 M mega-
10003 G giga-
10004 T tera-
10005 P peta-
10006 E exa-
10007 Z zetta-
10008 Y yotta-

does yotta mean the same as lotta … as in lot of.

I remember when Teradata Corporation was selling a data base machine.  Seemed like more data than anyone could ever use.
