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.

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.

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!

this is a lose-lose situation dude. Hawking don't need any birthday gift. as you said this made him look like a fool. Intel could be nicer if they aviod a picture of his deformed face to show to the whole world. any decent man knows to put some coverups to their natural shortfalls, false hair, legs etc.

Wow!! I can't believe that guys of your 'intelligence' would make such blatant, and quite frankly discusting comments about SH. Just becuase he is disabled, it does not mean we should discriminate and lock him away out of sight. He has achived more in his lifetime than most of you put together - without being able to speak or walk. Grow up and show some respect

to conclude, Let me quote as following, so intel is a typical hypocrite, and HK is a fool. “So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honoured by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,

SH needs to be treated with upper respect. Amazing what he does archive. For me I feel just like a ripple in the pond in comparison to him, that's all. The article learns you to realize about the value of materialism. SH can not use a lot, he is very limited to use modern equipment and geeky hardware gimmicks. When I was a young engineer I would want to have all I could get my hands on. Now I am more relaxed and look at our world with total other view. I learned to let things pass, for goodness sake... Just my thought...

An unusual birthday present for a very remarkable man. It would have been nice if Intel had included a better picture of what the pattern looked like on the silicon and some sense of the scale.
