CEO of Royal Bank of Scotland uses an HP - Nigel Bamber - 11-04-2009

In yesterday's Lomdon Evening Standard , there was a picture of Stephen Hester at his desk at RBS on which there was a HP voyager calculator - no doubt a HP12C.

Jewelry. I hope he never used it. Think of HP's reputation!

Ah, the gold standard.

Does the 12c have enough digits to calculate his bonus? ;-)

Sounds like you should re-open the Tower of London.

At least the 12C can be used to display the number of Lehman Brothers options owned by RBS (approx.)
