    According to the SI unit prefixes, kB, MB, GB, etc. refer to bytes in powers of 10. 1 kB is 10^3 bytes, 1 MB is 10^6 bytes (10^3 kB), etc. To refer to bytes in powers of two, there are also the binary prefixes like kibi, mebi, gibi. A kibibyte is 2^10 (1024) bytes, a mebibyte is 2^20 (1045576 bytes, or 1024 kibibytes) etc. You abbreviate the units as kiB for kibibyte, MiB for mebibyte, GiB for gibibyte, and so on. The binary prefixes (kibi, mebi, etc.) have not yet been established in the computing and IT industry (I think they are established in standardization or formal computer science contexts), which can lead to confusion when a brand is referring to devices that have that much storage capacity of bytes: perhaps a hard disk marketed as having 2 TB actually has storage for 2 trillion bytes (2 * 10^12), and not 2^40 bytes as one may expect, a 4 GB RAM stick has capacity for 4 * 2^30 bytes, and so on.

    but yeah, a byte is usually 8 bits (an octet), a nibble is half of a byte, and the word size depends on the machine (32 bit or 64 bit, or 16/32 nibbles)
