To be honest, I wonder if TI just didn't decide to always set the lowest downgrade version to one versions lower, from now on, or if it isn't just automatic when they compile a new OS?

As for the calc prices, over a TI-Nspire CX was $194.99 before it got heavily discounted before its discontinuing ($149.99 was the lowest I saw). I doubt that this made parents very happy. Just besides that calc, there was a nice Casio PRIZM for $129.99 (still overpriced, tho), while both the 84+ and 84+SE are around $140-150. I bet that over here, if another company released a calc as great as the 84+ with every feature and teachers were willing to learn how to use it, they would start recommending that calc to students instead, because over here, people always want to pay as less as possible.

However, I think the fact there are so many games on the 83+ probably played a role, too.

Not necessarily. What i mean is that some people will prefer to pay a bit more to have more features. For example, some kids will ZOMGZOMGHOLYF#@$WANT!!!1!1one the second they see the color screen calc and the parent will buy that instead of the cheaper alternative.

(By the way, I am talking as if the CSE didn't exist yet, because the CSE isn't even available for purchase offline yet anyway. With the CSE it might be a different story because the calc is only like $10 higher than the 84+SE and about $20-30 lower than the Nspire CX non-CAS)

Yeah of course we always look for the best compromise.

What the hell is TI going to do? Because I think TI know that the omnimaga-community find a way to go around the protections

Well, I don't think so.
I think that they are ignorant about it that their project is now perfect and that we can't get past their new security mesurments even though we will be able to do so.

well, as I can see, if our genious coders can do that, it will take a lot of time and maybe a useless work because the 3.6 will be release on the summer...

True. Often fixes for such thing comes half a year later. TI is just trying to make it to discourage people from making hacks for this calc and to ensure that people have them installed less often or such things.
