One could understand it if these people made gaskets or ball bearings or ice-cream, but it’s difficult to believe that Intel Corp has never had any dealings with a text database: seems someone at the company has been tweaking our sister publication about our pedantic insistence on spelling out the full numbers of its chips – but if the stuff is going to end up in a text database, it is essential to continue calling things by the name they started up with, otherwise people searching the database are forced to do multiple searches using different keys in order to track all the instances that a single item occurs – but then consistency and attention to detail has never been Intel’s strong suit – Intel it was that compromised its 8086 copyright by neglecting to ensure that there was an Intel copyright mark on every single one.
