I Thought a Terabyte Disk Drive Was Cool

Yottabyte (1 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 Bytes)
Xenottabyte (1 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 Bytes)Shilentnobyte (1 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 Bytes)Domegemegrottebyte (1 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 Bytes)
Once we work around the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, we can plug in the masses and vectors for every object in the universe; store that in our Xenottabyte drive and calculate the future.

Many years ago, I attended an Intel technical conference about the then not quite released 386 processor.  One of the techies saidthat it had a potential address space of 270 bytes, which he insisted was sufficient for all reasonable needs, until some gamer insisted he needed more room.
