1971,
The 4004 microprocessor. This was Intel's first ever microprocessor.

1972,
The 8008 microprocesso. In 1974, Radio Electronics referred to a device called the Mark-8 that used this processor, Interestingly, the Mark-8 was hailed as one of the first computers for the home.

1974,
The 8080 microprocessor became the brains of the first PC-the Altair, named after a destination of the Starship Enterprise from the popular Star Trek series. Users could afford a kit for the Altair for just $395.

1978,
The 8086 and 8088 microprocessors became the brains of IBM's new superhit product the IBM PC. Its success skyrocketed Intel into fortune 500.

1982,
The 80286 microprocessor. Within just six years of its release, a whopping 15 million 286-based personal computers were installed globally.

1985,
The 90386 microprocessor. This processor featured a stagering 275,000 transistors.

1989,
The 486 DX microprocessor. With this, the user graduated from command-line to point-and-click computing.

1993,
The Pentium Processor. This processor allowed computers to process real-world-data, such as sound, hand-written and photo images.

1995,
The Pentium Pro processor. It was desined specifically to fuel 32-bit server and workstation applications. The processor eventually propelled sppedy computer-aided design.

1997,
The Pentium II Processor. This chip enabled PC users to capture, edit and share digital photos via the Internet.

1998,
The Pentium II Xeon Processor. This processor features innovations specially designed for workstations thriving on business applications.

1999,
The PentiumIII Xeon processor. The processor enabled the speeding up of e-commerce applications.

2000,
The Pentium 4 processor. while the 4004 chipran at 108 KHz, this processor clocked a phenomenal 1.5 gigahertz. Users could now create professional-quality movies and render 3D graphics in realtime.

2001,
The Xeon processor. This processor offers users a choice of operaing systems, along with high performance, all at affordable prices.

2001,
The Itanium processor. It delivered world class performance apart from enabling e-commerce security transactions.

2002,
The Itanium 2 processor. It promised outstanding performance, supporting business applications.

2003,
The Intel Cetrino Mobile technology launche. The technology offers new capabilities specifically for the mobile world. such as increased battery life.

2003,
Intel releases the Pentium 4 processor Extreme Edition that supports Hyper Threading technology. The Processor has 2 MB of L3 cache, and is designed for gamers and the like.

2004,
The Centrino M(Mobile) Processor debuts. It is built on Intel's 90nm fabrication technology. It features a 2MB L2 cache, and 400 MHz power-optimized system bus.

Do you have a Blogger(blogspot) Blog and do you know Google is deleting blogger blogs??

As usual, I was checking backlink tool to find some of the friends link (who has linked backed to me before) if they still have my link backlinked to me or not. Well, some of them didn't link back to me. I checked their site and the message I got upon visiting their blogspot(blogger) blog was something like "this blog has been deleted." As I was visiting some of the other blogspot blog, I found few of them got deleted too. I thought, may be they got over blogging. Recently more and more blogspot(blogger) blogs are unavailable or being deleted. Now, these things forced me to think why those blogs are being deleted. I usually check official google blog for any kind of stuff they are upto. Their blog was shut down too(it's some days before), they are online now though. But, it's quite eerie because this very blog of mine is hosted on blogger's server too. I don't know what happened to their official blog but it's confirmed news they are deleting blogs. M
