Something so trivial could help so much more than we would have anticipated. This is the kind of contributions users often overlook or take for granted. In the long run, we would all eventually see it though and we wouldn't know who is the one to honour until it is too late. Nevertheless, there will still come a time when we would all be grateful for each and every contribution ever done during the past so many years for the advantage we have today.

Hi Tim,

You are correct; most people do not know their names, but I published this article so that many more engineers would know who these guys were. I am glad you found this educational.

Thanks for writing this article!  I had no knowledge of Peter Gruenberg, nor of his and Albert Fert's work.  GMR is a REALLY BIG DEAL!  And whether or not these guys' names are household words, everyone owes them a lot.  Hats off to them!
