No, they use 1KB = 1000 B - which is the correct usage.

Tiny pedantic correction. The SI prefix is 'k' rather than 'K'. Plus
there's a space between the quantity and the unit. So in SI it's 1 kB
rather than 1KB

According to

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binary_prefix

1 KB would be using the JEDEC convention rather than SI and would mean
1024 bytes. Or would be a typo.

Cheers, Dave
