New: I bet you get these mixed up all the time

Last week, I read the book Managing Gigabytes by Witten, Moffat, and Bell. It's about storing and retrieving huge repositories of data.

This week, I am reading Trilobite! (Eyewitness to Evolution) by Richard Fortey. It's about trilobites, the prehistoric critters.

This, of course, begs the question: What is the difference between a gigabyte and a trilobite?
