1. [syn: kilobyte, kibibyte, K, KB, kB, KiB]
WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006):
n 1: a unit of information equal to 1024 bytes [syn: kilobyte,
kibibyte, K, KB, kB, KiB]
The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015):
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.
