It's 40 years since Intel baked the first microprocessor, so celebrate by buying The Register's latest ebook, Happy Birthday Intel 4004.

In this ebook, El Reg's RIk Myslewski traces Intel's path from the 4004, Intel's 2,300 transistor, 10 micron wunderkind of 1971, through to the 22nm, multi-billion transistor, multi-core marvels that underpin today silicon-based world.

On the way, he runs through the chip giant's biggest hits and asks a barful of Intel's top engineers when exactly we can expect the company's processors to finally supplant our puny human brains. The answer will surprise you. And don't worry, he hardly mentions Itanium at all.

At less than the price of a birthday card, this ebook will leave you amazed, astounded, and wondering where the time went.
