TI introduces new calculator! Takes world by storm! HP quits business and asks forgiveness! - Gene Wright - 03-23-2011

Here's the new item!

:-) Just kidding. Thought I would mess with my friend Joerg. This is the Santron 400 from his site.

Santron at Datamath.org

And, yes, a bit early for an April fools joke.

Looks like Kadhafi's new make up ... so he can slip out easily out of Libya!!


Gene you are WRONG! Hewlett Packard was FIRST!!! - Joerg Woerner - 03-23-2011

Gene,

You are wrong - and I'm not kidding. The Datamath Calculator Museum is a serious business and we recently reverse engineered the successor of the HP 41C.

After removing no less than 10 (typical HP quality!) screws from the calculator and dismantling it completely I was shocked!

The mold of the calculator frame had a SMILEY embedded:

So what?

Cheers,

Joerg

What?! There's no double-wide Enter key. Is it RPN or RPL? How deep is the stack? Does it support IR, SD, serial or USB? Is it LED or LCD? ;-)

Remember, a smile is an upside down frown.


Regards,

John

Shock! :-)

Joerg, you are a good sport!

We now have a mutual calculator friend... Scott, whose father lives near you.
