The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley was a perfect contained tale of the now. Narrator: The answer, when it came, caught Fairchild off-guard.

Andy Grove, Intel: If two people argued and we all looked to him for a decision, he would put a pained look on his face and maybe said something like, "Maybe you should work that out." We had an empty building and we could do it the way we now thought was the right way to do it. With Alyy Khan, Suchitra Pillai, Jake T. Austin, Agneeta Thacker. Jay Last  Ginger Jenkins, Fairchild Semiconductor: It was all manual dexterity.

Charlie Sporck, Fairchild Semiconductor: Bob's thinking about it and he says, "Yeah, we could do that."

In 1957, decades before Steve Jobs dreamed up Apple or Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook, a group of eight brilliant young men defected from the Shockley Semiconductor Company in order to start their own transistor business. I am also of an age where when I first started work, Windows was just rolled out to the business I was in. How could they beat us? Richard Bohnet  The main characters are men that most have heard of at some time or another and include Steve Jobs (Noah Wyle) and Steve Wozniak (Joey Slotnick) on the Apple side and Bill Gates (Anthony Michael Hall) and Steve Ballmer (John DiMaggio) at Microsoft.
Shockley Laboratory was about to suffer an exodus of talent from which it would never recover.

Good dvd quality. Focusing on the early careers and professional lives of several key people, the movie depicts several events that led to the personal computer revolution. It's a fascinating story of corruption, greed, and fraud.

You know, our hearts and passions were really in our job. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness. But each had certain friends. When you're building semiconductors, sometimes a chip comes out, that works. It's now being sold in the millions. Lured by the booming electronics and defense industries, young … If men didn't wash their hands after going to the bathroom, the uric acid crystals would wipe out hundreds of chips.

Jack Yelverton, Fairchild Semiconductor: Fairchild Semiconductor really became the tail that wagged the dog.

Jay Last, Fairchild Semiconductor: When I look back on it now I'm just flabbergasted that we did what we did.

But they all agreed the new venture needed him. Leslie Berlin, Historian: The space race is on and the federal government suddenly has an insatiable need for precisely what these guys are going to start building. Narrator: Noyce filed a patent for his integrated circuit in July 1959.
