The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015):

kibibyte The official ISO[?] name for 1024 bytes, to distinguish it from 1000 bytes which they call a kilobyte. "Mebibyte", "Gibibyte", etc, are prefixes for other powers of 1024. Although this new naming standard has been widely reported in 2003, it seems unlikely to catch on. (2003-09-27)
