[Recorded Nov 13, 2006] The Computer History Museum and the Intel Museum mark the 35th anniversary of one of the most important products in technology history.

It was the first and it was the enabling technology that propelled software into the limelight as a key player in the world of digital electronics design. Intel, which had been making memory chips, used the 4004 as a technical and marketing launch pad to develop an expertise in microprocessors that, in quick time, made it a market leader.
