Kbps:

Kilobits Per Second (Kbps), not to be confused with Kilobytes per second (which is 8 times more data per second). This term is commonly used in describing data transfer rates. For example, two common modem speeds are 33.6 Kbps and 56 Kbps.

Kickstarter:

A public-benefit that maintains a global crowdfunding platform focused on creativity and merchandising. Kickstarter is one of the largest online funding platform developed for creative projects such as film, music, art, theater, games, comics, design, photography and much more. Kickstarter’s stated mission is to “help bring creative projects to life.” This is a free service available to use via the internet at the Official Kickstarter.com website or as a mobile app.

Kilobyte:

A kilobyte is 2 to the 10th power or 1,024 bytes. Most small files on your computer are measured in kilobytes. For example, thumbnail images might use only 5 to 10KB of space. A larger 900 x 600 pixel JPEG image can take up 250KB of space. Text files are often less than 1KB. Most documents you save on your computer should be between 1 and 1,024KB. Anything larger than 1,024KB is measured in megabytes.
