So a byte is 8 times a bit? For people like me who can never remember the difference between a byte and a bit, is there a one-sentence explanation for why there are bytes *and* bits?

Perhaps a food analogy might help you remember the difference between byte and bit.

If you aren't hungry you may just nibble a bit (bit) at your food but when you are hungry you will be take a bite (byte) of the food.

From that you should be able to visualize the difference that is smaller than a byte.
