Ha! That is insane. Those graphing calculators now are hundres of dollars. I guess I'll wait to get one for another 30 years or so...
I have one of those calcs. I also have far too much junk.I'll need to get an Ebay account...
So is there anyone out there that even owns a slide-rule anymore? And know how to use it??
My Dad knew - he was an engineer. He also owned a Commodore Vic-20 "computer". The first home computers available to the masses. It was a thing of beauty.
I think the first digital watches were like $500 a pop. The same ones that eventually sold for $5 a pop..
$70 ????Where???When I started college in the 70s these things were in the hundreds.In 1976 they came out with a calculator watch along with a pen you needed to push the buttons.Then president Ford wanted one, but at over $1000 her thought it was too expensive.
I had a digital watch but never got used to the feeling of a watch around my wrist. Not even to this day..
