comment Abbreviations for higher SI prefixes?
But I digress. More to the point, it looks like the only going verbal shorthand for terabyte is "T" and there hasn't yet been occasion to treat petabyte and friends to the same nicknaming. Thanks!

comment Abbreviations for higher SI prefixes?
@ShreevatsaR I'm a) not sure why you assumed I am male and b) sticking to my non-tautological guns on this one. What I meant was that "the traditional mega- etc. prefixes are" not only more popular but also refer specifically to memory (@jk01 good point) blocks in increments of powers of 2.

Although the meanings of these prefixes in a vacuum are powers of ten, in every computational setting referring to powers of 2 in my experience, they have been the prefixes of choice. "Mebibyte" and friends really have never caught on.
