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.

No touchscreen device will replace my HP48GX, Nothing compares to the sound and feel of the keys :-). For a PC based calculator Qalculate!!!. but it will be nice to have and HP48GX on a mobile phone, just in case you need to save the planet with some complex calculation on the go

Same here, been using the same 48 for 12 years now. Still looks and works the same as the day I bought it. The 49 and 50 never even came close to the build quality of the 48.
