Byte, megabyte, and gigabyte are terms that have become a part of our language. If you’ve shopped for a new computer, an iPod, or a new data storage device you’ve probably considered how many gigabytes of storage that new device offers. But just how much data comprises a gigabyte? Or a byte for that matter? Focus.com recently published an infographic that answers those questions and more. As the infographic is huge, I dropped it into Zoom.it to make it fit in this post and give you the ability to zoom in on various parts of it.
Applications for Education
