Intel Dual & Quad Core

I understqnd what Dual and Quad Core is but I object to the use of the term core in discribing a processor or in this case multiple processors. The term core evolved from the use of ferrite core in first generation computers, i.e. IBM 704,705,709... and is described in most publications as obsolete. This reapplication of core to identify a silicon semiconductor is incorrect.
