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.

Why would I pay $15/$30 for a calculator when one comes with the phone? Nostalgia?

I think haven't used a RPN calculator, right?, personally I am used to it, and I only tolerate the usage of a standard one, and this behavior is common on people that grown up on studying with them. I think even the RPN notation influenced in my love in the Smalltalk programming language (not RPN really but has that feel)
