Texas Instruments TI-30X IIS ($14) or the TI-36X Pro ($20). The 30 is a scientific and statistics calculator, whereas the 36x adds the vector math and constants, and a few basic solvers.
- The TI-30XIIS scientific calculator is approved for use on SAT*, ACT*, and AP* exams.
- NCEES: Any Texas Instruments calculator must contain either TI-30X or TI-36X in its model name

Yup, that's what I was thinking too, every book purchase includes a free drone.
Australia, droppin' knowledge since 2014
It's estimated that now over 50% of the biomass of the world's oceans is jellyfish, in some cases completely displacing all other biosystems. One other human activity vector that has impacted jellyfish populations is shipping, transporting species globally to locations with no predators. The warming of waters by nuclear power may locally cause phenomenon which encourage jellyfish growth also. If you could avoid destroying other marine life, maybe the answer to the cooling intakes is "will it blend?".
Japan’s nuclear power plants have been under attack by jellyfish since the 1960s, with up to 150 tons per day having to be removed from the cooling system of just one power plant.
That’s just what happened when the Mnemiopsis jellyfish (a kind of comb jelly) invaded the Black Sea. The creatures arrived from the east coast of the US in seawater ballast (seawater a ship takes into its hold once it has discharged its cargo to retain its stability), and by the 1980s they were taking over. Prior to their arrival, Bulgaria, Romania, and Georgia had robust fisheries, with anchovies and sturgeon being important resources. As the jellyfish increased, the anchovies and other valuable fish vanished, and along with them went the sturgeon, the long-beloved source of blini toppings.
By 2002 the total weight of Mnemiopsis in the Black Sea had grown so prodigiously that it was estimated to be ten times greater than the weight of all fish caught throughout the entire world in a year. The Black Sea had become effectively jellified. Nobody knows precisely how or why the jellyfish replaced the valuable fish species, but four hypotheses have been put forward.
Speaking of Windows sounds: Ever hear a person say "h", "t", "t", "p", "colon", "backslash", "backslash",
People say things like this because they like to parrot words that they think make them sound smart. If they just learned "backslash" they'll be sure to pepper their speech with it even when the character is just a slash, just like calling the box with the power switch the "hard drive".
You mean did they test it on improperly calibrated monitors with blown out whites? Go to this site, and reduce your lcd contrast controls until you can see the various grays, because it looks like one would expect even on my adobeRGB wide gamut calibrated display and with Firefox color management mode turned on.
Now, how does it look on a braille reader or links?
Not necessarily kill the fancy graphics, destroy the useless big pictures. I get very irritated at the wordpress blog sites that have to Google for some barely-related huge picture to stick at the top of a story; do that and you've started down the path of making Slashdot just another blog with comments. On Slashdot, the comments are the content.
There should be something for a 2540px wide browser to do, maybe like another site, use multiple columns to display stories, or at least show "most commented/hottest stories of the day stories" or replies to a user's posts in the sidebar instead of a poll.
