I think the biggest problem is they are probably biting off too much to both create the hardware and extend it. You can already run Mathematica from any location as follows.

HP Corvallis calculator operations had already been moved to Jp-15c and not long after in the Australian operation was shutdown and the calculator division was moved to Singapore.

And then rediscover the HP 15C?

For the 2 previous decades I programmint a slide rule which I still have somewhere in a drawer. If you mention the 15C to a nerds of a certain age, our eyes grow misty at the utter perfection of it. I learned to program in that calculator when I was in primary school.

On the HPC a second stack which carried the imaginary parts of four complex numbers was added instead. And for many years after had a desktop HP calculator. Take that Steve Jobs. Review these tips to help preserve the beauty of your books! Due to their continued popularity secondhand HPC books are often available from Amazon, ebay and other outlets.

I practically wore out the keys doing calculations related to a chip problem we were having alpha particles causing memory errors. It got me through calculus, physics, modern physics, statics, and circuits before my backpack got stolen. I still use it nearly as my sole calculator Program,ing might have replaced the batteries once. Why it happens is also pretty clear. A single current FPGAs could trivially implement the entire hardware of a series eady originally had several ICs the original series used an early form of surface mount.

I still have it and it works, although the rechargeable battery pack is long dead. I carry a 15C in the pocket of my briefcase and it goes with me practically everywhere. Some cover xnd, may contain a few marks.

On earlier HP calculators, complex arithmetic was carried out by storing the real and imaginary parts of just two complex numbers on the 4-level stack.

Second is the glory of reverse polish notation. The 28C is eaasy and still works, but it definitely missed something compared to the 15C. When I was about 7 years old this would be the late 70sI was given my first calculator, a small black Commodore with white buttons.

HP calculators have only gone down hill since the late 90s. At school, I love when folks ask me znd borrow my calculator and gladly let them — for the 30 seconds it takes until they realize they have never even heard of RPN, much less know how to think in it.

Mine lasted for more than 20 years before it was destroyed by a fire in hp1-5c office… Anyway, you can react to the lost of yours: First is the form factor.

On Ebay, a 15C in good shape can go for hundreds of dollars. Some things transcend mere earthly politics. In this event, there may be a slight delay in shipping and possible variation in description. Mine also had an amusing collection of chip defects that caused it to progfamming errors that were occasionally noticeable.


In comparison, modern HP calculators are crammed with a thicket of unusable little buttons. But it broke within a few years. Much too non-intuitive for simple little me. I still have the manuals.

Anyway, you can react to the lost thhe yours: RPN calculator, binary clock, unix operating system, Lisp programming language, LaTeX document processing — the high road is a lonely road! Indeed the Programminb included some quite clever memory control to deal with all this.

Find Rare Books Book Value. The HP15C was truly a classic — it was part of a series: Only market demand seems to have resulted in a grudging implementation in the latest versions. The buttons are large and well separated, and there are no more or no fewer than you could want. The only difference with the original being that some functions will run up to times quicker. Way back in the day, there were other companies that sold RPN calculators.

I still use it occasionally. Add to wishlist E-mail a link to this book.

Cover may not represent actual copy or condition available. Still my favorite for so many reasons. And RPN was utterly natural, allowing rapid-fire calculations.
