New features on the New HP Calculators:
* Cell phone
* roaming internet access
* MP3 music player
* built in DVD player
* 3D videogames such as "lord of the rings"
* a 4-function calculator with a 4-button memory and an 'equals' button.
* digital point 'n shoot camera
* 30 seconds of camcorder capability (compressed B&W)
The top-of-the-line model sports a double-width 'ENTER' button, however its purpose is to bring up the soft-menu for the DVD player.
Asked about the feature-set not containing any trigonometric nor calculus solving capabilities, an HP executive on condition of anonymity said "MATH, you want to do MATH, ha, what's your problem chump ? Don't you know this is the internet era ? We determined that the marketplace requires this feature set, just to maintain our quarterly profit projections thru next quarter. SAY, you're not one of them engineer types who never went to business school are you, HA, I bet you were part of that fabricated moon shot hoax back in '69. "
