Description: Intel co-founder Gordon Moore has died at age 94. In 1965 Moore made a famous prediction that became known as Moore’s Law: essentially, it states that the capacity of computer chips would double every 12 months or so. His rule was expanded to a broader range of technology, sparking the notion that the next generation of technology will make the current one obsolete every 18 months. Moore was known for his modesty, despite his intellectual and business success. As well, he established a charitable foundation that has donated over $5 billion since it began at the start of this century.
