This may sound weird and unrespectful for the venerable HP-25C but, just as a humble opinion, I suggest to avoid that fancy calligraphic "Continuous Memory" badge; or at least make an option to display it or not. It is reasonable that, at those old times, HP needed to stress this new feature that much, and to so devise that exaggerated statement. I would had preferred that they just put the 25C mark in the traditional, sober label, and let the knowing people tell the difference.
By the way, I would also prefer that HP doesn't use faceplate space on the current calculators with labels as "Scientific Calculator", "Business Calculator", and so. I understand the need to put such legends on the box or blister; but I cannot think of a valid reason to have it all the time on the device face.
Just an opinion, and I know it goes against historic accuracy. See you soon at the App Store, my iPod Touch 4G already has a lot of HP calc simulators, but there is always room for one more; and the HP-25 was my first, unforgettable, HP calculator.
