The Pentium chip in this keychain was from a batch of ICs rejected because of a subtle error in their design—the “FDIV Bug—a defect that inspired widespread criticism of Intel. On the back of the keychain are these words from Intel CEO Andy Grove: "Bad companies are destroyed by crises; Good companies survive them; Great companies are improved by them."
