This 50 year-old theory is the reason we all use iPhones and iPads

For the past 50 years, computer processing technology has adhered to a theory known as Moore’s Law. The concept states that processing power increases two-fold every two years. It also states that the size of the transistors used to make computer chips also decreases.

Intel co-founder Gordon Moore first published the theory in 1965 and it has since been referred to as the “Golden Rule” of the electronics industry. Intel innovation strategist Steve Brown explains the impact that Moore’s Law has had over the last 50 years and how we can expect it to have an even bigger influence on our lives in the future.
