Electronics was an American trade journal that covered radio electronics magazine pdf radio industry and its later spin-offs in the mid-to-late 20th century. Its first issue was dated in April 1930. VNU sold its American electronics magazines to Penton Publishing the next year. Generally a bimonthly magazine, its frequency and page count varied with the state of the industry, until its end in 1995.
The magazine was best known for publishing the April 19, 1965 article by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore, in which he outlined what came to be known as Moore’s Law. 10,000 reward for an original, pristine copy of the Electronics Magazine where Moore’s article was first published.
The hunt was started in part, because Moore lost his personal copy after loaning it out. The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was not so lucky, however, as the day after Intel announced the reward, they found that one of the two copies they owned was missing.
Intel has stated that they will only purchase library copies of the article from the libraries themselves, and that it would be easy to determine as most libraries bind their old magazines, requiring to cut the article from the bound book if a thief were to sell the article. Intel ultimately awarded the prize to David Clark, an engineer living in Surrey, England who had decades of old issues of Electronics Magazine stored under his floorboards.
