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 Apple allowed these emulators and not C-64 emulator, that was refused by AppStore? Probably because there are no (attractive) games these calculators.

My guess - the HP emulator comes from the same company that made what it is emulating. The C-64 emulator probably does not, and thus there mught be a few legal questions.

because while it's emulated the iPhone app is just running the one rom. Normal users see it as just one a and don't know any better. The C64 app is made to write and run C64 programs inside of iPhone and we can't have writing and running user apps ON the phone, can we.
