Fact a Day #122 : What is half a computer byte called? :O

What's up Guys!
Long time long see I guess
Been having exams so couldn't find time to make any posts :(
But, now I hopefully will be able to post regularly.
Anyway with further adieu, lets get to today's fact.   

WHAT IS HALF A COMPUTER BYTE CALLED?
Do you know?

Its called a "NIBBLE"

Basically a byte is 8 bits.

A nibble is half of that, so its a group of 4 bits.

Simple ehh.
The reason you guys may have to heard of this before is 
because we don't use it that commonly nowadays
