Maybe they ran out of supply?

Well, with at least two major calc enthusiast sites promoting the event, I wondered how long the Prizms would last. :P

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

No, I don't think they ran out. I just got an email today from their new sales rep in AZ saying that he can show me how to get a free PRIZM calculator by going through the training program on their site.

I wanted to introduce myself as the new Casio sales rep for Arizona.  Casio has recently released the new PRIZM graphing calculator that has features not found on the competition.  These include Casio’s Color Link technology with 82,000 pixels, the Modify feature, Picture Plot and Dyna Graph.  I would love to have the opportunity to show you the PRIZM.  Just let me know and I will stop by.  I can also show you to get a FREE PRIZM color graphing calculator by completing the online course at casioeducation.com.  I look forward to hearing from you.

So they probably still have them. Good news for all of us who are a little behind! (I sent in my 3rd assessment today)  :D

That's good then I guess. Unless the user in question actually got caught cheating or something and that it was why he got rejected?

Welcome to Omnimaga by the way :)

Yes, the only difference i know aout between casio basic on 9860 and on PRIZM is color, which can be accessed with [shift]+[5] (format) ;)

A few people might also have CFX calculators, which already supported colors since 1995. They might be able to get used to Prizm BASIC even faster since it's rather similar.

Make sure to populate the general Casio section of Omni with BASIC tricks once you find them. :D

Erm no I never said that. I meant that some forum members and members of other Casio sites most likely already own old CFX calcs since years ago or got them on Ebay, since back when they were still in production (1995-2003) they were very popular.

Hopefully all of you guys who wanted a PRIZM have gotten a PRIZM! :)
Today CASIO has exhausted the supply of PRIZMs (~10:15 PM):

Greetings!
 
I'd like to take a moment to thank you for participating in our Online Course.  For the past several months, we have had a great deal of interest and have enjoyed all the participants.  While our course is still thriving and will continue to operate, we have exhausted our supply of fx-CG10 Prizm calculators.  Our software continues to be available and we will continue to distribute that to finishers as long as we can.
 
Please continue to spread the word about our program and let us know if you have any questions!
 
Kind Regards,
Nathan

Well, at least they still have FX-CG Manager licenses. Useful as there's no free community-made Prizm emulator yet.

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...
