More Ways to Customize Calculators
Posted by Michael on 14 July 2005, 03:40 GMT

TI has recently released a new line of marketing accessories for the TI-84 Plus, TI-84 Plus Silver Edition, and TI-89 Titanium graphing calculators. GraphiTI adhesive overlays (note the pun) are removable adhesive labels for slide cases. They can be purchased in one of four psychedelic colors: Blue Fractal, Pink Fractal, Planets in Fire Blazing Orange, and Silver Diamonds. The overlays are $2.50 each or all four for $8.00 from the TI Online Store.

Its concerning to me that TI is only producing adhesive overlays and kickstand cases for the 84+, 84+SE and the 89T. (Not that i would buy the adhesive overlays if they had them for any of the calcs that i own.) Although the kickstand case seems quite useful. Makes one wonder if TI is going to will continue to support accessories for older calculators or not. :-/

What do you expect? Seriously, after the TI-83+ outlives its usefulness (which could be quite a while; it's one of TI's most successful models), do you really think TI is going to continue supporting it? Or any other other model for that matter? Look what happened to the TI-81, TI-82, TI-83, TI-83+ SE, TI-85... You can't buy them from TI anymore and I bet you won't get tech support on them either. Obviously, TI has moved on already to the 84+ and 89T.
It's called marketing: TI only makes the "cool" accessories for its newer models; thus, people are encouraged to buy them over the older ones. Then TI phases them out. Poof!

And for the record, the kickstand case is really not all that useful. It's mostly for show. I know; I have one.

If you want my opinion on customization (besides what I mentioned in earlier posts), someone ought to break TI's monopoly on operating systems (and I don't mean BASIC/ASM shells or cheap knock-offs of Windows). THAT would be true internal customization!

There are already OS's on ticalc.org for the FLASH upgradable calcs. But i havent tried any of them to see if they are worth it or not. From what i see there still could be improvements though.

There are exactly 2 alternative operating systems for the TI-83+/84+. Neither one is worth anything! (no offense intended to the authors of the operating systems). When I said someone needs to develop a replacement OS for TI-OS, I meant "replacement"!!! While they are a good attempt, the current alternative operating systems available just do not cut it!

Ha! Don't hold your breath. They're like Microsoft with Win95 and 98.

GraphiTi Adhesive overlays :|. This is boring. and besides, the calcs are already cool enough (but not as good as an XBOX 360) {Quote} I have not had the chance to play on an XBOX 360. Anyway not many people have the 84 series atleast from my knowledge.
And anyway who needs crazy stickers (even though i want them all) Hah ah hah ah hhah

yep, ti is getting desperate for money again... i know several people with stickers all over their calcs, but i dont think any of them PAID for the stickers.

TI also has a bunch of competitions going on that you can find at 84silver.com, one of which is to make your own design (with their crappily slow flash tool that you have to use, can't hand-draw anything -.-). You can see what mine looks like at my url and if you'd like, vote for it. I suggest viewing other ones too though..
