I just learned that kilobyte and megabyte refer to the 1000 scale units while "kibibyte" and "mebibyte" are apparently the names for the 1024 scale units. Everything I know is a lie!
Apparently the distinction is for the conflicts with the SI prefix of kilo and mega being defined as powers of ten (not in relation to 1024).
