That, of course, is the opposite of the silicon Valley view.
The deal also launches Andreessen into the top tier of silicon Valley power players.
In a two-part ruling, the Federal Trade Commission let the silicon Valley giant off easy.
And some are both booming and busting, such as the wide gulf between silicon Valley and the Central Valley in California.
Project Los Altos: SFMOMA in silicon Valley runs through March 2, 2014.
Wrought iron is made by burning out from cast iron most of the carbon, silicon, phosphorus, and sulphur which it contains.
Their pseudo-flesh is composed mainly of silicon and fluorine.
When the leaf is green the silicon is not so obvious; it is nevertheless there.
One of the best of these is a mixture of iron and silicon, called ferro-silicon.
This stirring admitted air to the mass and the oxygen consumed and expelled the carbon, silicon, and other impurities.
nonmetallic element, 1817, coined by British chemist Thomas Thomson from silica (silicon dioxide), from which it was isolated. The name is patterned on carbon, etc. Silicon chip first attested 1965; Silicon Valley for the Santa Clara Valley south of San Francisco, U.S., first attested 1974, from the concentration of manufacturers of silicon chips used in computers, watches, etc.
silicon sil·i·con (sĭl'ĭ-kən, -kŏn')
A nonmetallic element occurring extensively in the earth's crust in silica and silicates, having both an amorphous and a crystalline allotrope and used in glass and semiconducting devices. Atomic number 14; atomic weight 28.086; melting point 1,414°C; boiling point 3,265°C; specific gravity 2.33; valence 4.
A metalloid element that occurs in both gray crystalline and brown noncrystalline forms. It is the second most abundant element in the Earth's crust and can be found only in silica and silicates. Silicon is used in glass, semiconductors, concrete, and ceramics. Atomic number 14; atomic weight 28.086; melting point 1,410°C; boiling point 2,355°C; specific gravity 2.33; valence 4. See Periodic Table.
