Units of storage in computer terms
can vary greatly. The smallest is the Bit, going all of the way up
to the Terabytes. A Bit is one binary number (computer language).
Binary numbers are either "1's" or "0's." A Byte is one letter (A,
B, C, etc.). A Byte can be 2-10 bits, depending on how many binary
numbers it takes to make the letter. A Kilobyte is one thousand bytes.
A Megabyte is one thousand Kilobytes. A Gigabyte is one thousand
Megabytes. A Gigabyte is what we normally use today when we talk
about computer storage. But, in the future, we will be talking about
the Terabytes; one thousand Gigabytes. A Terabytes can be 2 - 10
