there is no reason why they need to keep shaking up the milkshake. They already had their models. They dont need a hybrid of 12C and 15C .
12C is a completed design. 15C is a completed design. Build the 15C on the same production line as the 12C.
Committing to such a project would be trivial. They could call it "15C Classic" and charge $175 a pop and make good money. Then the MBA's and the engineers aren't in disharmony over what buttons to put on the calculator
MBA would say: "derrr, what's this "LOG" button, I am not a logger, I am an MBA" ..............
Engineer says: "Hey, why is there a 'fraud estimation' button on my scientific calculator, I never had anything like that on my slide rule".
Better each group get their own calculator, the designs are already completed, they could build them and make money if they choose to.
Why dont they ??
