Warning to HP Calculator Users

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Here is an interesting HP website that I used several years ago when I was
having problems with one of my calculators.  It provides a history of all
the HP calculators every made.

If many of you are like me, you've been using an HP RPN calculator since
your freshmen-level statics class or even before that.  Over the weekend, I
discovered that those of us who depend on our HP calculators may have a
potential crisis on our hands -- HP may be ending its calculator
development division.  You can read about it here:

HP is the only producer of RPN calculators.  I don't know about you, but my
brain only works in RPN!  The switch from RPN to a regular algebraic
calculator would probably be more painful to me than the switch from ASD to
LRFD (a change that I'm currently undertaking).
