Are you implying that it should read 'the' Father and guys like Ted Hoff, Mazor, Faggin, etc should get no credit what-so-ever??

It's cool that they put up a doodle to honor Robert Noyce. However, the glaring absence of a doodle commemorating the 70th anniversary of Pearl Harbor was offensive to say the least. Especially considering that later in the day on the 7th, they put up a doodle to honor some obscure artist that hardly anyone has ever heard of.

No, I am not implying that. I am just pointing out that it just reads strange, they c(sh)ould have worked it out differently, I think.

Who in their right mind would commemorate the 70th anniversary of Pearl Harbour? Maybe a few crazy japanese?

[citation][nom]f-gomes[/nom]Celebrates "a" father??? C'mon, guys...[/citation]

If you read the article he is considered to be one of two people who are credited with creating the microchip. So it is correct, he is A father, not THE father. I know, hard to believe considering all the grammatical mistakes people find in articles, but this one is not one of them.

Umm...The American Government and I bet a decent majority of American citizens, they federally recognize the day, as a day of remembrance for those who died.

Definition of the word commemorate.

Recall and show respect for (someone or something) in a ceremony.
Serve as a memorial to.
