Also, I can't help but note that it's a shame that these easy-to-use Macs have such trouble. :x As a Windows user, I had trouble too; I had to click on the setup program. ;)
it just works...

Re: 43S News

Huh! I was wrong... there isn't a reason. :o Other than W & P like it that way. Which to be fair, is equally valid as my own "I'd like it the way it was". After all, these are just opinions. I've no interest in waging a war over a religious topic, sadly there are too many people in the world doing ...

P.S.: Massimo's link should point here: https://www.hpmuseum.org/forum/thread-118.html
Ok, no page 2, but they however, land on one page and show the same info.

All together now: obelus, obelus, obelus... :D

Re: 43S News

But it's not a question (for me) of "early" or "late" HP layout. I am actually OK with EITHER the "early" or the "late" layout. What I would really prefer to avoid is a hybrid that is neither... i.e. putting the operators on the left like the "early" ones, but arranging them in the "late" ones' ord...

Re: 43S News

There can be no doubt you started your HP calculator use with a Voyager or Pioneer. Not judging, just observing. And though I prefer the earlier layout (since it was perfect after all) it's good IMHO that Jaco laid early groundwork for 43S users that prefer this clealry incorrect layout, for folks ...

Re: 43S News

I scratched in the WP43S emulator code and found some good reasons why some or all of the dev team won't entertain the idea of officially changing the operators to the right hand side of the calculator.

Re: Battery life

Hello, Is this problem fixed? Yes it is, definitely, for me at least. Try to contact David, he will probably have you try some measurements on your unit. In the meantime you can try changing to one of the four different settings of Power OFF mode (shift + 0 [setup], 5, 2, 7) and see if it makes a d...

I want the portrait version! :D
I could concur, in this case.

You are strangely quiet about the placement of the arithmetic operator keys... :D
Yeah: I am thinking about the vertical red LED bar... :P
