A shyte is a measure of information - usually on a computer. One shyte equals one byte. A shyte is used to measure corrupt data, bad programming and rubbish on the internet.
A spam message might contain 5 kiloshytes (KS), a virus-infected file attachment could be 1.5 megashytes (MS) in size, a bad sector on a hard disk might take up 3 megashytes. Something measured in gigashytes (GS)can be left to the imagination.
