As the title says: do you want to have wifi in the OTZ80 calc or not?
Consider any regulations, power usage, etc. for this feature.

I think wifi, while nice, might be an unnecessary luxury for a simple calculator. What *are* the pricing/power usage/regulations?
Wifi is rather power intensive.
I say if we do have Wifi, make it an optional add-on.
Wifi is a good idea in theory, but if we had it, it will drain the battery like anything. My PSP won't even charge when wifi is turned on.

I think it is a optional. I am tinkering to change my vote but for the moment I am slightly more in favor then against, convince me that it is not neccesary!

Good point. I still think it's a bit too much for a *calculator*, though. What kind of math function would need an Internet connection?
Plus, if we included Wi-Fi, it'll probably be disallowed at all the major standardized tests
If Wi-Fi was included it wouldn't even be allowed in almost all everyday tests (including non-math tests).

To me at least.
If we do end up keeping this and other, um, controversial features, we should probably add a Push-to-Test or something similar. Still gotta keep the teachers happy somehow. It's still an educational product, anyway.

Yes, that's true. But we don't want the ACT/SAT to see "wifi", and freak out. What other options where we thinking about adding that were controversial?

As much as I like wifi, I voted no wifi because as people said standardized test agencies would disallow this calc.
