How about a petition
that we send to the board of directors of Agilent,
asking them to buy out the calculator topics from HP.
Everything I personally have noted thus far, in visiting this chat board the last 3 months, suggests that calculators are academic tools of intelligent scientific, engineering, and professional people. Such people are still represented at Agilent, makers of exceptionally sophisticated electronic instruments (impedance analyzers, oscilloscopes, frequency generators, etc etc etc).
Meanwhile, HP ding-dong board of executives is thinking about how to rip people off on the next hula hoop that they sell 20 million units of. Maybe they want to sign a joint merchandising agreement with "incredible hulk" to sell a computer that is painted green with a bottle of green slime in each packing carton.
HP management are idiots with no comprehension of test instruments, technical professionals, engineers, physicists, and other parts of the University (Academic) communities.
They should turn it over to Agilent and quit fooling around with something they know nothing about. Imagine the current crop of HP idiots holding the car-keys to the network analyzer products and infrastructure. They would go 'derrr how do you work it, derrr, lets discontinue it'.
They are too dumb to even know how to plug it in the wall, so thats why such instruments are at Agilent.
We should have a petition as such, and send it to both board of directors. No, I didn't offer to do all the work.
But I can clearly state that this is what we should do (rather than grouse about how Carly discontinues all the products..... of course she does.... she doesn't understand them, her brain is too tiny, understands only greed, and counting of money).
