Bite vs Byte

Bite vs Byte. The forensic computer program had enough bytes of memory to enhance the bite mark on the victim. Don’t be a victim of poor writing, use ErrNET!

Bite as a verb is to use the teeth to cut in to something to eat it (of a person or animal); to grip a surface (of a tool, tire, boot, etc.).
Bite as a noun is an act of biting in to something to eat it; a sharp or pungent flavor.

Byte is (computing) a group of binary digits or bits (usually eight) that is considered a unit of memory size.

Bite and byte get easily confused because of their similar spellings and identical pronunciations. Take the confusion out of your writing and give it some bite with ErrNET copyediting technology!
