Re: 43S News

... Your arguments are interesting as they could apply the same way to the location of the operators... In that case, don't we need to discuss the layout of the numeric keys as well? Surely they must be laid out like on a mobile phone, like this? 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Otherwise people of this day and a...

Re: Leather Case for DM42

I like the looks of that Buckaroo case but I don't see a source in the US. I have been using the following case for my iPhone for the past couple of years: https://www.amazon.com/Tradesman-Holder-Klein-Tools-55461/dp/B00G8RNLWI Good grief. Did you ever hear anything about international trade? How w...

Folks, you're interested in vintage calculators - why don't you use a damn ol' laptop for visiting websites?!?

Re: [DM10L] Coming soon!

On my iPhone, scrolling down on that page doesn't work very well, I tend to get stuck halfway, so I can't reach the DM10 part at the bottom. I had to view the page on my laptop to confirm that part was even there. (The SM web site is generally not very mobile-friendly.) My observations were made wi...

Re: Another 43S poll

I (a native English speaker) vote for "B" as well. While I can admire the wordless elegance of "A", the likely buying market is all used to HP decades-old convention, I think.
