NO RATINGS
i am wondering if intel is interested in a commercial deal. they are more interested in publicity rather than science achievement for sure. since there r more than a dozen folks around with better achievement.

The people measure wrongly achievements. It is not where on the top of the mountain somebody stands, instead of that it should be how difficult, complex and demotivational was the path to be overcome. So, talking about those dozen folks that you have thought maybe they do not have better achievements at all.

well, maybe hawking's next target/challenge is learn a couple of blue man's dance moves. that would fit in a intel comercial perfectly and prove again he got the top prize.

For unknown reason I don't feel comfortable in reading this piece anyway. I think intel should stick with maroon 5 or U2 for publicity promotions. It's not right to use this poor man's twisted face to earn some attention.

What/who does give you the right to judge Hawkings as a "poor man"? Don't you think with his 70 years (wow!) he is not old enough to make his own decisions? I am pretty sure it is a win-win situation!

How do you want to measure achievements? Intel very much depends on physics with all what they do. Intel produces CPUs used for computers which are used by physicists. So to me it is very obvious they do honor Hawkings and not someone who did remarkable achievement in medical science.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
