When computer [memory] was small the difference from a [decimal] kilo was only 24 bytes. The term for a computer [thousand] (1024 bytes) was also known and described as a kilobyte. As memory has grown the [difference] is more noticeable having 10% difference in size when talking about terabytes. In 1998 the [kibibyte] was designed to replace the kilobyte in computer science contexts for [accuracy]. So [1024] bytes is a kibibyte or kilo-binary byte. A kilobyte is [1000] bytes..
