This is pretty crazy, but it’s true, calculators haven’t changed much since the 90’s.

Why you ask?

Honestly, who’s really using these anymore. Can you ask yourself the last time you really used a calculator? The only time I can remember needing one is on a rare occasion in the office, but most of the time, I’m using another device for my mathematical needs. I’m sure there’s a lot of people with me on this.

Now don’t get me wrong, there’s still tons of people who actually still use calculators. But let’s be real, the only time the average user is using  one is at the office.

Accounting, banking, insurance, administrative, etc. These are the kinds of uses the average person is need of one.

Honestly, I’ve caught myself using my phone when it came to busting out an equation. I found it more of a hassle to open my task bar on my desktop, then the calculator, and use the keyboard and mouse the whole time.

Much faster to just whip out my phone.

Anyways, to show some homage to the calculators  of our past, I’m going old school and busting out the OG’s:
