Word of the day:

Trigabit - trig-a-bit

1. Very advanced encryption layer, triple the effectiveness of 3DES.
--Usage: That firewall is capable of trigabit encryption…wow, that is government grade (quote courtesy the movie Swordfish).
2. When used to describe data storage, 1,024 terabytes.
--Usage: You need ton of storage for your legitimately ripped movie database, I would say at least a Trigabit of space.
3. When used to describe data transfer rates, it refers to 10 to the 14th power (1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) bits.
--Usage: You know, I think in the future we will see high speed connections capable of trigabit levels of speed.
