A Genuine HP And An Imposter
Picked up a Hewlett Packard 10BII calculator today. As far as calculators go, it's nothing fancy; it has an array of business functions, 12 digit screen, some programmable memory. However, the styling, build quality and feel of the buttons is top notch. HP still makes some of the best calculators money can buy.
Next to it is my Palm TX running a program called Power48. It's a freeare app easily found through Google that allows your Palm to emulate an HP 48SX, 48GX or 49G. Of course, while entering numbers isn't as nice as on the real thing, numbers crunch through much faster than on the real thing.
