Yes, but the name has changed. 1024 Bytes is now one kibibyte,
abbreviated 1 KiB. And 1 KB is now exactly 1000 bytes, following
the same rule as for any other unit of measurement (SI).

I know. But apart from the fact that AFAIK the USA do not follow SI.
That KiB/KB mess was created by people with no knowledge of the
computer environment.

The IEEE no knowledge? >:-)

The IEEE is probably fine, but the KiB/KB idea was actually created by
the IEC.
