Agilent dismembered itself over a period of about a decade, spinning off each division until there was nothing left of the original Hewlett Packard core but Life Sciences. No place there anymore for a calculator group, or any reason for the original company name!

Who decides?

Hello,

Are you able to elaborate on why prime is a security risk in your line of work? That got me wondering!

Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own. I do not speak for HP.

RE: HP reduces drastically employees
I work at a national lab in Albuquerque working on secret stuff for the DOE - which is about as specific as I can get on a public forum. 8^)

They limit "Personal Electronic Devices" in the "limited" [secure] areas. Basically any computing device (or phone*! or bluetooth device or USB stick or bluetooth enabled bike hub!) that has a large writeable memory is verboten.

Just the fact that I can move a large file from a PC to the Prime is very suspect. I can have the Lab buy me a Prime, but then it is theirs and not mine, so I cannot take it if I leave.

I am probably bending the rules a bit with the HP71B, but you cannot smuggle many secrets in 48K RAM!

*This seems to be a bone of contention between the DOE and the Lab, young kids out of college refuse to work in a place that will not allow them their phones!

I had narrowed it down to something like that, or else maybe "security reasons" meant you were afraid of your Prime getting stolen at work. :-)

That much RAM can hold 40-50 pages full of uncompressed text and the HP-71B can have as much as 3 times more RAM plugged in. Add a little compression and there you are, 200-300 pages are within reach.

Shhhh! What are you trying to do, get my HP71 taken away? I meant *my* HP71B only had 48K of RAM.

I perfectly understood what you meant. I was merely pointing out that nothing prevents you or someone else fitting an HP-71B with RAM enough to hold 200-300 pages of text or more and you can "smuggle many secrets" in that many pages.

How much ink is required to update the display on an HP Prime? If I switch to a white background, will that reduce the amount? Is color more expensive than B/W? Is there a B/W theme that I should use instead?

Will new calculation slots be shipped on a monthly basis? Any roll over privileges? ?
