In that post someone compares the release rate of calculators from TI and HP today compared to back then. I do believe it is a misleading comparison.

First the high end calculators today are hard to be quickly inadequate (for the target audience), while back then calculators were very limited, at least in memory, and there were not many alternatives for mobile computing devices. So the competition was fierce.

I mean today very few can push the 48 series or the 49g+ series, aside for intensive computations (it is ok to mention plotting, that can be quite slow). Even less a Prime.

Then there are the "lesser" calculators, for example scientific models, that I do believe would cover a lot of needs back then, and those models have a release cycle that is shorter than 10 or even 5 years.

Wikis are great, Contribute :)
