While the term “nibble” is still largely unknown, units of information such as gigabyte and megabyte are used frequently. But what amount of data do these terms actually describe? To answer this question, we must understand the meaning of smaller units such as bits, bytes, and the nibble. Find out more about these units of information and how their conversion works.
What’s larger – a MB or a KB? And what is 1 GB in MB? You may have asked yourself these questions before. MB is the abbreviation for megabyte, a common IT storage unit. It tells you the size of a file or how much space it takes up on a data carrier. But what makes up a megabyte and how does it relate to other units of measurement?
What is bigger: a KB or a MB? And how large is a kilobyte really? That’s a question most digital media users will have asked at some point. Sending files as email attachments, for example, requires an understanding of the kilobyte. But how is this information unit structured and how do you convert it to other units?
Whether you’re working with hard drives, computers, or smartphones - digital applications and storage devices indicate their capacities in bytes. But what is a byte and why do we need it? In short: The byte is the smallest quantity of data and consists of 8 bits. Since computers store a lot of data, bytes can be converted into larger units like megabytes and terabytes. Keep reading to find out how...
Gigabyte (GB for short) is a unit of storage capacity encountered frequently when working with digital technologies. It is used to indicate the storage capacity of hardware, the size of a file, or the data volume available for mobile surfing on a chosen network. But how many megabytes are in a gigabyte and what is the difference between a gigabyte and a gibibyte?
Simply explained: an exabyte is equal to one trillion bytes. But few people can actually make sense of a file size this huge. It’s simply not enough to know that a byte consists of eight bits and roughly corresponds to a letter. One thing is for sure, global, monthly data volumes now exceed 174 exabytes and this number is expected to double by 2022. That’s why it’s worth keeping an eye on the...
The brontobyte - officially this quantity of data doesn’t even exist. In short, the brontobyte is big data - 1 brontobyte is equivalent to 1024 bytes. Such a huge quantity of data is near incomprehensible and probably won’t become relevant for our daily lives for a very long time. But for tech giants, it’s only a matter of time until we reach the era of the brontobyte. Keep reading to find out...
Bits and bytes are part of our daily life, whether we’re aware of it or not. They’re the units of measurement for storage capacity and data transmission - meaning that you’ll need to know about them when shopping for a new computer or deciding on a WiFi package. But what is a bit? And how does it differ from a byte? Keep reading to find out more about the smallest unit of information.
Units of storage in computers, such as megabytes and terabytes, refer to quantities of data and storage capacities. Users will be familiar with units like gigabytes as they relate to hard drives and USB sticks. But units like exabytes and zettabytes rarely come up in daily life. Keep reading to find out which storage units exist and what they really mean.
Creating a YouTube timestamp link with a start time marker is the easiest way to share a video that you want to start playing at a specific point. This ensures that the recipient only receives the information that is relevant to them, especially when it comes to long videos. So, how do you create a YouTube timestamp link?
