From yesterday’s “Win on Wednesday” during the J and J Midday show, our trivia had a near record amount of texts. The question was:

Stored on 500 gigabyte hard drives, and STACKED, this would be over 8 times taller than Mount Everest. What is the DATA that is being stored in “said” drives?

The answer:  (from “Business Insider)
They (Amazon) have 1.5 billion items listed for sale and 200 million users. Amazon has one billion gigabytes of data on their items and users. If you put all that data on 500-gigabyte hard drives and stacked them up, the pile of hard drives would be over eight times as tall as Mount Everest. Now that’s some big data.


FRIDAY MORNING 9 TO NOON:   Barry Scott hosts “The Lost 45’s” and his theme is:
