USD$10,000 For An Electronics Magazine !

Monday 25 April 2005 @ 2:48 pm

April 11, 2005, Intel posted a search in eBay for a 1965 copy of Electronics Magazine that featured Intel co-founder Gordon Moore’s thoughts on how silicon technology would evolve. Whoever is willing to sell that magazine to Intel will be awarded USD$10,000.

The issue contained an article by Moore that described how the number of components on integrated circuits was doubling every year. The article became the foundation for Moore’s famed dictum, which has been a favorite maxim of the IT industry for decades. Electronics Magazine went out of business several years ago, though, and copies are scarce.

One day after Intel posting that offer on eBay, David Clark, an engineer in Surrey, England, quickly sent a photo of the well-preserved copy of that issue and response off to eBay. So as promised by Intel, Clark has reaped the chip giant’s $10,000 by selling the magazine to Intel.
