hehe of course computers still use it. Every time you press a key on teh keyboard it sends 8 bits of information to the PC. these 8 bits equal a byte.
The computer uses this form of information in circuits too, and it's binary, and so digital.
Digital has 2 states = 1 and 0.
If it was analogue for example, it'd have many states. But the computer works in the way it does (and can also proove why we cannot have true AI) because it is still using data 2 states in circitry and in coding for itself.
To say google, thats if it was typed, you'd have to use 6 sets of 8 bits, so 6 bytes to write it in memory.
Google would be:
G = 01000111, (no caps) o = 01101111, o = 01101111, g = 01100111, l = 01101100, e = 01100101.
This is what the computer stores everytime you'd type that into the keyboard.
edit : You'd also have to count spaces which would be 8 0's
Hope this helps
p.s This whole post for example would have (up to here) 848 bits or 106 bytes. You start to see how word documents gain in size as you keep typing. 1024 bytes of this information would equal 1 Megabyte!
