Pradip Bose recalls economic and technical changes in the hardware sector of the computer industry over his four years as Editor in Chief of <em>IEEE Micro</em>. As he took office in 2003, the frequency wars characteristic of single-core processor designs had barely started giving way to a new trend of multicore chips, now firmly established. Bose looks ahead to challenges brought by multicore chips and anticipates the proliferation of a wide variety of ultra-power-efficient, high-performance processor chips that cater to specialized markets: Finally, Bose introduces <em>IEEE Micro</em>'s new Editor in Chief, David Albonesi.
