U.S. manufacturer of semiconductor computer circuits. Intel was founded in 1968 as NM Electronics by Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore, inventors of the integrated circuit, to manufacture large-scale integrated (LSI) circuits. In the early 1970s it introduced the most powerful semiconductor chips then known, which soon replaced the magnetic cores previously used in computer memories. IBM chose to use Intel's 8088 microprocessor (introduced 1978) in its first personal computer (the IBM PC), and Intel microprocessors became standard for all PC-type machines. Although other manufacturers eventually developed Intel-compatible microprocessors, Intel continued to power more than 80% of PCs.
Technology in the next 10 years....is going to be WAY different. Whether it will be good or bad, I don't know. The world could be on the brink of destruction and technology was put on a back burner OR there will be GREAT advancments. I wouldn't be surprised if we have auto-pilot cars.
