Geek stuff, sci-fi... I guess the tragic death of Michael Jackson put the internet on hold or something, as the amount of news we can find has come to a grinding halt. I did find something interesting, though: HP has made several of its classic calculator models available as iPhone applications or as Windows applications. I'm personally not particularly versed in the world of mathematics (other than statistics), but I do know the love many geeks have for their calculators.

Wrong. Unlike TI, HP has given permission for the ROM images of their 8-bit calculators and is rumored to have even contributed code to Emu48, the main emulator. The newer 32-bit calculators are still off limits (legally speaking) but the 38,39,48sx,48gx and 49g are all OK. This has been their for almost nine whole years now: http://hp.giesselink.com/emu48faq.htm (See the first question under the "ROM Image" section for details and download links.
