|HP doing surveys on vintage calcs|
Message #1 Posted by Tom Mathes on 14 Oct 2008, 10:05 p.m.
I called HP today to get my replacement 35S replaced again under warranty. The first one had a defective ENTER and 4 key, and this one a mushy gold shift key.
The customer service rep asked me after giving my info on how to return the calc if I owned other HP calcs or had owned them in the past. I told her I owned a 41C but it broke 10 years ago, but still own a 48G, a 32SII and a 33S. She then asked if I'd be willing to take a survey on my interest on "retro calculators". I got the survey this evening, and this is the text:
Thank you for your support of HP Calculators.

I'm not sure if the survey link is unique to me or anyone can fill it out. It's hopeful that HP is actually toying with building some classic calcs. When it asked my 1st choice for a calc I had to go with the 41C. And here's the link of the survey results:
