W&W CURSOR magazines available
You probably all know the German company W&W Software Products GmbH who manufactured the amazing HP-41CY. For a while they also published their own magazine called CURSOR. Another HP fan has lent me some CURSOR issues for scanning. The work is now finished, and you may download it here (follow the link at the bottom of the page). Obviously these magazines are all in German, but there are some very cool devices pictured that might be also interesting for English speaking forum members.

From the editorial it's clear that issue 88/1 was the first one. However, I'm not sure if 89/2 was the last one. If anyone knows how many issues were published please let me know.

WARNING: the magazines look like a wish list for HP calculator enthusiasts and may trigger new desires ;-)

Jürgen,

thank you for your effort and for making this available!

I thought that "World Wide Professional Guide" was a sort of overstatement in these years, but when I look at the cover of issue 89/1 I see that it was indeed an understatement and should probably have read "Galaxy Wide Professional Guide"...

That's why I don't write it and restrict myself to the spoken sort ;-)
