Intel Finds Their Mag

Filed under
Misc

CHIP FIRM Intel paid an engineer from Surrey $10,000 for a copy of an electronics magazine containing an article that Moore's famous 'Law' was said to be based on.

Gordon Moore penned a piece for the April 19, 1965, issue of Electronics in which he suggested the number of transistors on a chip would double every couple of years.

Moore hasn't seen the piece since he lent his copy of the magazine to a bloke that never returned it.

Intel decided the mag would provide it with spinning material so it even posted an ad on eBay's Wantitnow section.

The publicity had David Clark rumaging under his floorboards for the mag, muttering "I know it's here somewhere."

His missus, who had been moaning at him for hoarding old junk has changed her tune, we hear. µ
