Great posts here... One clarifying point about the web index size. The numbers quoted were 1.1 Billion fully indexed documents and a web graph of approximately 2.7 Billion. There is always confusion about index statistics, many engines quote index size as documents crawled. The old 1.6 Billion document number related to the size of the web graph.
