    This is kinda untrue because:

    (webpages vary in size)
    (emails can have dozens+ of pictures and videos)
    (word documents could be colored with weird shit and have pictures)
    (digital photos could be large panoramas)
    (200 songs could be HQ)
    (at an average of 2minute 30second songs, sure)
    (movies i download are at 750mb usually, so this is somewhat true)
    (ehh depends on the game)


    View 26,000 Web pages OR
    Send 105,000 e-mails OR
    Attach over 2,000 Microsoft Word documents (of about 10 pages each) OR
    Receive up to 500 digital photos OR
    Download more than 200 songs OR
    Stream 18 hours of music from the Web OR
    Download 1.5 movies (or 2/3 of a movie in high definition) OR
    Play games online for 240 hours (or 10 days)
