    That is amazing when put in that context. The mind boggles on where they could take that given more time. Are they charitable too?

    Pays to make these comparisons so people can relate. Especially helpful when you look at debt; for example, what a trillion of anything actually equals. One trillion seconds is longer than recorded history.

    More? OK, this one is rather interesting and it is possible I made it up. Likely not, however. I wanted to ask Professor Wikepedia, but he is drunk.

    Apparently, you could fit every man, woman, and child in the state of Texas. They would easily fit. We wont try it because I love Texas. Anyway, the volume of Loch Ness is 7.44 cubic km and apparently, the entire world population will only take up 1.93 km.

    million: six zeroes
    billion: nine zeroes
    trillion: twelve zeroes
    quadrillion: fifteen zeroes
    quintillion: eighteen zeroes
    sextillion: twenty-one zeroes
    septillion: twenty-four zeroes
    octillion: twenty-seven zeroes
    novillion: thirty zeroes
    decillion: thirty-three zeroes
    undecillion: thirty-six zeroes
    duodecillion: thirty-nine zeroes
    tredecillion: forty-two zeroes
    quattuordecillion: forty-five zeroes
    quindecillion: forty-eight zeroes
    sexdecillion: fifty-one zeroes
    septendecillion: fifty-four zeroes
    octodecillion: fifty-seven zeroes
    novemdecillion: sixty zeroes
    vigintillion: sixty-three zeroes


    So when will we need a new one, Appletillion perhaps?

    AWesome, but we can'd admit that the Apple's value, as its product are so popular, maybe not only herd behavior, but really worthy that, just read this "5 Reasons to Buy iPad 2", I think there are more list of reason to buy an iPhone/iPad...
