the new Hewlett-Packard Calculator Indoctrination Center ??



#3

Hey, has everybody seen the new Hewlett Packard Communist Indoctrination Center, for loyal Carly Fiorina foot soldiers ???

Here it is, give it a browse, its the latest innovation in HP calculators (no calculators, but you can have a website).

http://www.hp-calculators.com


It's kind of interesting. Our new fuhrer, Mr. Valdez, assures us that along with fine products like Walmart 9S and 9G, that there will be other fine new products coming soon

(Kmart 9S and 9G ???)

I see they also put the "HP-12c" in the listing for 'scientific/engineering calculators'. OK, I'll do depreciation of money, instead of phase angles.

They allude to a 'new release' coming up in the next few weeks..... that would be the 'platinum' HP-12C. Well hey, since they are making it out of real platinum, at 3 times the price of gold, I should be able to pull profit by buying one, and melting it into a platinum ingot. Dang, those Wall Street calculator buyers sure do insist on high-end materials !!

;o)

Actually it's a platinum-iridium alloy. That's why it's the "new standard."

This old hp-65er drilled down through the site and simply notes that Carly is evidently pitching these products to Middle- and High-school students. Don’t be too harsh on her; it’s an investment in new customers. But I do wonder if they have a site for those of us who have seen the light and live according to the RPN Gospel. :-)

They don't need a site for us. We have one.
I just hope that the new engineering calcs have a big ENTER key, and look like serious instruments.
