HP really need to get their act together and stop releasing buggy/bloated softwares for their calcs and computers, else the HP Prime will just fail and the 39G will never take off. No wonder why they almost went out of business a few years ago.

Nope. The main reason, nowadays, is that TI is by far the market leader, and TI is well-integrated everywhere in the education system, so they get the "leader bonus".

I have reported many BUGs, but the HP developers ignore.  :'(

What surprises me is that the CASIO calculator (fx-cp400), can not operate list of lists  :banghead:

Hence they can define prices over ten times the production cost and sell the more powerful ones cheaper than the lower ends to kill them.

But that doesn't prevent HP and Casio to make awesome calcs.

That said, TI calcs have their shares of bugs too, some of which haven't been fixed for decades. They have much fewer bugs in general, though.

What sucks is that most calcs have bugs that can hinder school-related operations, not necessarily programming.
