**DEEP SIGH**

To each his own, but I shall point out that Wolfram Alpha, Computers and Smart Phones are not on the College Board list of approved calculators for the SAT (which applies to High School students, and which applies to me as a father of one), which is why overpriced calculators that still use very old tech like the TI-83 Plus are still used and even recommended by American schools.

And so, people still need calculators due to standardized testing, and therefore online forums like this one exist to help people searching for the best calculator (for themselves or their children) to find the answers they need.

Someone may then criticize standardized testing or criticize the moon for merely existing. Who cares? We rant about what we rant about and move on. Let's do that now -- move on.

If you like emulating other calculators on a Prime, more power to you. I am not standing in your way. Ditto for people who want to emulate a Prime on a NUMWORKS. My goodness... I am standing in no man's way! I'm not even criticizing you for doing that. I am not criticizing anyone for merely liking that. I simply said it's not for me in that I don't get the point, and for daring to say that, here I am defending myself from ongoing criticism!! Ack!
