That is a very sad news. The bad part is : a lot of people worked to build thouse calcs we enjoy (ti or hps, i have both). HP have been doomed, maybe they can return to the HP Way some day. I hope that, because when they did that was an age of prosperity and health (my father worked for them almost 11 years...)
I heard something about a new calc : the Extender (or was it expander ?).
We have to rocognize the power of handhelds, they cost not much more than a calc and they are very far more powerful, maybe the next calc is based in this kind of hw (of course with out wince (Lastima CE)).
Because a hw like a calc with its little power can do as much as we want but a new hw wath can we dream ?
