Intel is living in wonderland if it thinks people are going to buy a mobile phone based on the chip it uses.
CES 2012 rumbles on, but I'm just about to board a plane back to the UK. So with my time in Las Vegas coming to an end, who are the winners and losers of the show?
CES is an exercise in two things; queuing and hyperbole. Today, set in the artifice of the endless Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, is all about speeches. From 8am to 8pm, companies try to persuade and suggest that they have 'the next big thing' - or at the very least something close.
The Intel 4004, the first commercially available microprocessor, is 40 years old today. While not many people will have heard of it, the 4004 is still one of the most significant technology launches of all time.
First advertised in the 15 November, 1971 edition of Electronic News, the 4004 was designed for use in a Busicom 141-PF calculator. The importance of microprocessors/CPUs in modern computing cannot be overstated. Simply put; the 4004 changed the way people thought about computers and kick-started a technological revolution that is still alive today.
