I thought the 8008 was developed to go into a terminal. And then the
original *user* decided against using it so Intel started hawking it
as a micro-cpu. It must hav made it into SOMETHING that was not a
computer. Someone mentioned thr front panel of a DEC but it must
have been used in some terminals. Anybody know if and which?

As I remember the 4004 was actually Intels first micro-cpu and I don't
know of any commercial product that used them - but I don't know
everything. Any product types and names?
