$10,000 for Moore's Law Mag

Filed under
Hardware

Electronics giant Intel have posted a request on E-bay spin-off 'Want it Now' for a copy of the April 19, 1965 issue of Electronics Magazine, offering $10,000 for a mint edition.

The reason for the large reward is that Intel co-founder Gordon Moore had his theory, which became known as Moore's Law, published in that edition of the magazine.

The 'law' came about from the article where Moore observed an exponential growth in the number of transistors per integrated circuit and predicted that this trend would continue. The 'law' has held true so far and Intel themselves predict it will do so until the end of the decade.

On their advert Intel goes on to warn people not to pilfer copies from libraries and to take good photos.

The company will choose the best one offered or buy several at a lower price.

We imagine hoarders and engineers all over California are currently digging through boxes of junk hidden away in lofts and garages.

If you have a copy, assuming the advert is genuine (ding, ding-ding ding...) then you can submit a reply to the request on Want it Now.

The Ad.

theregister is carrying a humorous look at this story. I got quite the chuckle out of it: clicky.

When we laid out our featured article on things you need to do after installing Ubuntu 14.10, we shared a few little issues we have had with the latest Ubuntu release. Well things got worse, and I decided to try something else for a change. I've been using elementary OS Freya as my daily driver since then. And I have to say, I'm mighty impressed so far. And the fact that Freya is still very much in beta makes the whole affair all the more interesting. A list of reasons why I prefer elementary OS Freya over Ubuntu 14.10 at the moment. Read more
