Where can I find a concise histroy of calculators since the beginning? A few pages of who did what first, advancements, etc.

Thanks.

Just make sure you find a history that has the following item:

December 1, 2005: Tim Wessman and John Evers change the surveying world forever when their 49g+ solution is unveiled.

:-) Be glad when you guys have it available! I think it will be a big hit!

There may be no one 100%-super-perfect-site. I guess the information is scattered around the Internet and you'll find pieces of the puzzle here and there. Very good pieces you'll find here at our all favourite HP-Museum, other pieces you can find her:
http://www.snarc.net/pda/pda-treatise.htm. Maybe other members of this community will give more links. Have fun putting the pieces together.

Rick Bensene keeps and maintains an excellent and concise timeline on his site: http://www.oldcalculatormuseum.com/timeline.html

Hey great! That was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks. I appreciate the link!

@db: sad, bad, but true...

@Tim: Have a look at www.finseth.com/~fin/hpdata.html

Down the site you will find an "Evolution Chart". It is an interesting view in very compact and concise format regarding the HP calculators.

Excellent Timeline, but no mention at all of hp 41C series (!)
