Perhaps, it’s the announcement that HP is selling all the calculator IP, inventory, and marketing channels to SwissMicros for cheap so SM can build next gen equipment with Swiss reliability and build quality. ... Far fetched, but intriguing to imagine.

I may have a problem!

More like they’re upset that SM more effectively outsourced to China than HP, and so they’re going to sue everyone out of existence.

That would definitely be a good resolution for SMs next gen.

Actually far less than 2. Only part-time from those 2 persons, and for 2020, almost none of that at all... An inglorious ending for such an inspiring and creative team for so many years. :(

And I hope we'll manage to get them both to our next HHC whenever that will happen.
