He is quoted as saying:
"While I'd like to think that the PC wouldn't exist today if I hadn't designed the 8086, the reality is that it would be based on some other processor family. The instruction set would be radically different, but there would still be a PC. I was just fortunate enough to be at the right place at the right time."
In recent years, he has applied his technology expertise to web-based genealogy search tools. His "One Step" search pages are widely used by genealogists all over the world. He is also a co-author, with linguist Alexander Beider, of the Beider–Morse phonetic name matching algorithm.
