well brontobyte is 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 bytes (1 thousand zillion zillion bytes) or 1 zillion zillion kilobytes . . .

i dont think we'll have to worry about that for a while

Well...at least not til they start creating digital clones of humans, ones that encompass EVERY facet of a human being. i.e. fully realistic AI personality, etc. Boy...that would be even freakier than a real clone of yourself .

Haha...I can just imagine the little guy..."WTF WHY AM I ON THE INSIDE NOW?!?!!?!"

I've gone too far with this one...

Well, as far as I could think of a use for it right now...digital packrats could use it. My neighboor used to have a WHOLE 2.5 car garage full to the roof and overflowing with junk, my old boss had multiple storage sheds full of random BS...some people could manage to fill up that 1.6TB.
