Here are 5 things you should know.
1. Google has an inactive account manager and settings to control what happens to your account/data if you pass away like giving your pictures etc. to a loved one.
Check out myaccount.google.com/inactive
2. What is the difference between bit (b) and byte (B) and their abbreviations when it comes to data transfer speeds?
Having this information will help you be more informed when it comes to purchasing data plans and internet packages.
Between bits and bytes, there is an 8:1 ratio. So, if your internet is advertised as 1 gigabit per second (Gb/s) fiber, it’s purporting that their service is able to offer a transfer speed of 125 megabytes worth of data per second (125 MB/s), not one gigaBYTE (1,000 megabytes) per second (GB/s) worth of data per second.
Bytes are bigger than bits, so the larger unit (bytes) gets the capital B while the smaller unit gets the lowercase b. A bit is a rate of transfer, while a byte is a unit of storage so data plans are always advertised as bits per second, not bytes per second.
GB = gigabyte (1,000 megabytes) Gb = gigabit (125 megabytes)
Some common internet plans “decoded”:
1 Gb/s = 125 megabytes of data per second
100 Mb/s = 12.5 megabytes of data per second
10 Mb/s = 1.25 megabytes of data per second
3. Replacing the beginning of a Wikipedia article (such as en, for English) with “simple” brings up an ELI5 version of the article.
This works for plenty of Wikipedia articles, but isn’t a prerequisite to making one, so not every page has a simple counterpart. However, most popular topics do.
