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.

Those TI machines are fantastic and amazingly capable. I've got a few here including an 83+, 84+ Silver, and a 92+. Thousands of available software titles (including games), computer connectivity, and a good number of add-ons and accessories.

There was a TI emulator that I followed for some time and still use occasionally, Virtual TI, but it hasn't been updated in almost ten years.

I'd love to see those done right on iphone/touch. they're STILL $100 calculators after 15 years. While not as legendary as the HPs they're still widely required in high schools and colleges.
