Today, November 15, marks the birthday of an
invention that has almost completely revolutionized
Our story begins back when a brilliant young man named
Robert Noyce became vastly interested in a "newfangled"
device called a transistor. In college at the time, Noyce
began to get a vision for the future.
After earning his doctorate, he was offered prestigious
positions at IBM, RCA, and General Electric. Noyce
chose instead to work at Philco, the company that
offered the lowest salary, but Noyce felt they needed
him the most.
After that he partnered with William Shockley who had
managed the Bell Lab project that invented the transistor.
Then in 1968 Noyce and a few of his fellow scientists made
a landmark decision. They left the company, each put up
$250,000 in seed money and started a new company called
Intel (short for Integrated Electronics).
That same year Noyce invited a young man to an interview
in Noyce's living room. Ted Hoff was a rookie engineer,
fresh out of college and for the past 4 years had been
doing research on neural networks.
Hoff was nervous about the interview, but managed to keep
his focus on what he knew best - technology. The answers
he gave that day have forever changed the course of history.
Hoff got the job because he had stayed focused during the
interview. It was a trait that would take him to the top of
his profession. Ted Hoff became employee #12 of the
soon to be billion dollar Intel Corporation.
In 1969 a now defunct Japanese company named Busicom
approached Intel to make a chip set for a new calculator.
Busicom's chief engineer figured it would take 12 chips
to do the job.
But Ted Hoff had other ideas. He was always looking for
ways he could do a better job, and never gave up on an
idea until it was accomplished.
With Noyce's encouragement and the help of 2 other
co-inventors, Federico Faggin and Stanley Mazor, the
team set to work.
These men came up with a design for a single chip that would
do the job Busicom wanted. Unlike single purpose chips of
the time, this chip could do a variety of jobs. It included
not only the ability to perform logic (the ability to compute),
but also had some memory.
Thus the Intel 4004 microprocessor was born. It has been
called one of the most important inventions of the 20th
century. Microprocessors (the "brains" of your computer),
are found in cell phones, video cassette recorders, PC's,
and thousands of other products.
The design team got the job done because they saw a vision
for the future, had a passion for what they were doing, and
a .....never give up - never give in.....tenacity that carried
them through to complete the job.
“Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”

How To Be Tough In The Face of Adversity
The Arizona Diamondbacks are the 2001 baseball World
Series champions. But for rookie manager Bob Brenly,
it sure didn't come easy.
Brenly has long desired to be the best he could.
Bob was an All-American baseball player at Ohio
University in 1976; but despite that distinction, no
Major League team drafted him.
It was a major disappointment.
He could have given up, thrown in the towel and gone out and found a job.....but Bob Brenly knew what he
wanted and never took no for an answer.
He continued to believe in himself and his dream.
Everyday he would go to the ball park and have his
girlfriend hit him ground balls. He kept his skills
sharp and focused on overcoming his weaknesses.
His persistence and never say die attitude attracted
the attention of the Giants, who then signed him to a
Major League contract.
Bob Brenly went on to play 9 years in the Major
Leagues. In 1984 he even made the prestigious
All Star team.
During the recent World Series the media critics
grilled him up one side and down the other for some
of his decisions. Brenly made it through the Series
by not panicking, staying tough, and focusing on his
job at hand.
“It's not what if; it's what now. You make your
decision and say, what now, what's next?.....
not, what happened.”

More on 4004
The Intel 4004 introduced in 1971 had 2,900 transistors.
By comparision, the Pentium 4 introduced in 2000 has
42 million transistors.
A great majority of personal computers are called "Wintel
machines" because they're powered by Microsoft's
Windows and Intel chips.
DOS is Dead
On October 25, Bill Gates introduced Windows XP,
Microsoft's latest operating system. In 1981 Microsoft
came out with DOS (disc operating system) which
became the "engine" operating behind the scenes for all
subsequent Windows products.
DOS has taken the blame for the frequent crashes the
Windows systems too often encountered. With the advent
of XP, DOS is no longer a part.
In 1980 Microsoft bought DOS for a mere $50,000. While
DOS may have caused Windows users numerous problems,
it was the main ingredient to taking Microsoft to become
a company now valued at $341 billion.
The Money's on The Net
Results from a recent Yahoo/AC Nielson poll show that
Consumer confidence online has Not dropped because of
the events of Sept. 11. In fact consumers say they will spend
$1 billion More online in the 4th quarter than they'd
planned before the attack.
60% of those polled said they would shop online this
year and spend $12.4 billion on holiday gifts alone. Retail
Sales offline for October were reported as being "mostly weak."
Everybody Loves Pop-Unders :-)
NextCard is the largest issuer of online credit cards, they
are also one of the most active direct marketers on the Net.
They have now issued over 1 million cards because they
place over 1 billion ad impressions every month.
Their most effective ad, which gives the best return on
their investement is.....pop-unders.
A New Twist on Advertising.....
In a recent championship bout at Madison Square Garden,
boxer Bernard Hopkins came into the ring with an advertisement
for GoldenPalace.com (casino) tattooed on his back!
For being a walking billboard, Hopkins was paid a cool
$100,000. He said he'd love to do it again.....wonder why :-)
