Not too sure it that is completely correct. I'm no mathematician, (and don't it show) but i believe the figure to be much MUCH larger... Should the first (and in fact all) calculation be factorial (256^3)^(1,920*1,080)! Note the "!". Even my Word on my laptop can show in excess of 25000 digits on a single screen (which is a massive number in one frame), and we haven't even started on pictures, numbers or letters... or using the complete screen...! A googol of different screens would be simply 99 digits on the screen counting through. And that doesn't include the 16M different colors each of the pixels in each of the numbers could be...each of them factorial... Arrrrgh, it make my brain boil!
