  Bit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A single bit is a one or a zero, a true or a false, a "flag" which is "on" or "off", or in general, the quantity of information required to distinguish two mutually exclusive states from each other.
It is important to differentiate between the use of "bit" in referring to a discrete storage unit and the use of "bit" in referring to a statistical unit of information.
The combination of the symbols "bit" for bit and "B" for byte is also widely used in computing, and is perhaps least ambiguous.

Bits are held in a tool called a drill, which rotates them and provides axial force to create the hole.
Center drill bits are used in metalworking to provide a starting hole for a larger sized drill bit, or a conical indentation in the end of a workpiece to mount a lathe center.
These bits can be used on wood or metal, however they have a low tolerance to excessive heat which causes them to lose their temper, resulting in a soft cutting edge.

Bit depth might refer to the bit depth of an image, or the bit depth of a monitor.
When it refers to the bit depth of a monitor, it means that your monitor is able to show a certain number of colors at one time.
Well, as you might have noticed, the higher the bit depth, the more bits per pixel used in an image, and the more pixels used in an image, the larger the actual file is going to be.

 Bit Banging
The Start bit, which puts the line into the Spacing state (more positive than +3 volts) for one bit period, is sent first and serves to announce that a character is on the way.
After BRID detects a start bit it waits for Start to go away (i.e., for the line to return to a logic 0) and then counts loop iterations during the six zero periods before the logic one (space is hex 20) occurs.
Instead, BRID just measures bit time in terms of counts through a loop, an arbitrary, relative measurement that is indeed a function of both the CPU's speed (i.e., number of loop iterations per second) and the bit rate.

 bit definition - isp.webopedia.com - The Glossary for Internet Service Providers
Computers are sometimes classified by the number of bits they can process at one time or by the number of bits they use to represent addresses.
For example, classifying a computer as a 32-bit machine might mean that its data registers are 32 bits wide or that it uses 32 bits to identify each address in memory.
Graphics are also often described by the number of bits used to represent each dot.

To toggle or invert a bit is to change it, either from 0 to 1 or from 1 to 0.
The term bit first appeared in print in the computer-science sense in a 1948 paper by information theorist Claude Shannon, and was there credited to the early computer scientist John Tukey (who also seems to have coined the term software).

 Howstuffworks "How Bits and Bytes Work"
Both RAM and hard disk capacities are measured in bytes, as are file sizes when you examine them in a file viewer.
The word bit is a shortening of the words "Binary digIT." Whereas decimal digits have 10 possible values ranging from 0 to 9, bits have only two possible values: 0 and 1.
If a bit is 1, and you add 1 to it, the bit becomes 0 and the next bit becomes 1.

 What is bit map? - A Word Definition From the Webopedia Computer Dictionary
For simple monochrome images, one bit is sufficient to represent each dot, but for colors and shades of gray, each dot requires more than one bit of data.
The more bits used to represent a dot, the more colors and shades of gray that can be represented.
To display a bit-mapped image on a monitor or to print it on a printer, the computer translates the bit map into pixels (for display screens) or ink dots (for printers).

The move from 16 to 32 bits also included that you had a fresh, new API full of features like pre-emptive multitasking, threading, new GUI controls that was only available in 32-bit mode and so on.
I think that the change to 64 bit will happen faster that 16 to 32 bit, beacuse AMD already is selling 64 bit proccesors that are backward-compatible, so people won't mind bying them.
My point is that with 64 bit the costly and time consuming redesign that we are facing just would not have been needed.

 Understanding 64-bit PowerPC architecture
Early in the 21st century, the need for impenetrable security has grown tremendously, sparking renewed interest in encryption and decryption algorithms, as well as desktop security.
To preserve the "power of two" relationships that people have come to expect, with 8, 16, and 32-bit words in existing architectures, developers are getting 32 more bits, resulting in an address space that is 4 billion times larger than the maximum address space of a 32-bit system.
Capable of addressing an astronomical 18 billion GB, or 18 exabytes, of memory, 64-bit integers also accelerate complex mathematical calculations through their ability to perform calculations directly on 64-bit numbers, as well as performing multiple operations on smaller numbers within a single CPU cycle (see Resources for the definition of exabyte).

Because these Intel and AMD 64-bit chips will run the same OS and apps, development of software to take advantage of such chips--especially their ability to address larger amounts of system memory--should be faster, says Peter Glaskowsky, editor in chief of Microprocessor Report.
"This eliminates the last bit of confusion for the application developers," he adds.
By moving to include 64-bit support in more mainstream x86 CPUs, Intel has abruptly altered its often-repeated position that only large servers--such as those using its pricey Itanium chip--currently require 64-bit capabilities.
