Submission + - The 40th anniversary of Intel's 4004 microprocesso (

harrymcc writes: "On November 15th 1971, Intel introduced the 4004--the first single-chip microprocessor. Its offspring, needless to say, went on to change the world. But first, Intel tried using the 4004 in a bunch of products that were interesting but often unsuccessful--like a pinball machine, an electronic vote-counting machine, and Wang's first word processor. Technologizer's Benj Edwards is celebrating the anniversary with an illustrated look back at this landmark chip."
