Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Why are graphing calculators still expensive?

Remember these from high school? I bought a Ti-86 for pre-calc and calculus back in 1998 for high school. I used it some in college for statistics but mostly I just needed it for solving for a vertex or somesuch. I paid $89 for it back in the day.
Considering how technology advances push down prices, why are graphing calculators immune? I mean, there must be cell phones available with twice the processing power at a quarter of the price, right?
Can you imagine a TNT2 card or a Pentium 3 at $150 each today?
