comment Is a hard drive heavier when it is full?
Lay question: what is the ">>" operator? I know two ways to read it ("much greater than" and "right shift bits") but I don't think either of those makes sense. Can you link to a layman-understandable explanation of either the operator or (even better) the equation?
