 for kibibyte
From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) :

      n 1: a unit of information equal to 1024 bytes [syn: kilobyte,
           kibibyte, K, KB, kB, KiB]

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

      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.
