Digital technology works so well because at the heart of digital representation, there are only a few basic components. Nowadays, these basic components usually are binary digits, bits for short, called binary because they are designed to stand for only two different values, conveniently called zero and one. A stored or transmitted bit's state can deteriorate quite badly before a processing device will be mistaken in deciding which of the two possible values is the original.
