Organizer App for 68k
Posted by Joey on 20 July 2003, 08:24 GMT

TI has released their popular Organizer app for the TI-89, TI-92+, and V200 on their website. Unlike the TI-83+ version, this download is absolutely free. It can be used for class schedules, to-do lists, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and also features a calendar. If you already use your calculator more than your PDA (or you don't have one), this merits checking out.

On an entirely unrelated note, Patrick Davidson recently mentioned on #tcpa that the movie advertised in the June 2003 Newsletter needed more publicity. Thus, perhaps you should check it out.

Why don't you provide the movie in a usable format, such as MPEG?

I suppose it's because my video editing software provides three compression options: AVI, which is bloated, Quicktime, which is... Quicktime, and Real, which I've found to be rather good in quality to size ratio. Is MPEG any better than Real in quality to size, or is it just less proprietary?

for ONLINE viewing i prefer quicktime over everything because of the way it streams. none of this "50%" crap you get from realplayer - it downloads the movie and shows you exactly how much of the movie is downloaded and lets you play any part of the movie that's been downloaded. compression isn't bad either... the only problem is that it doesn't play in winamp or most generally-accepted media players besides.... quicktime...

Windows media player does some of the same thing when you open it as a program for online viewing. I would rather just download the movie then view it.

Oh please, I hate Real player. It is evil.

I rather like QuickTime. Even though it only views the movies rather than being able to edit them, it works better than Real (my other option).

yes, Quicktime it's OK, but mpeg is universal everyone has, don't you know about any endoding program??

About the topic, I think they should give the organizer app in TI83 I doubt anyone buys it, I have it, but that's because I have a TI 83 SE =P

Okay, if I'm understanding you correctly, you're saying that 1) MPEGs are universal (I thought Quicktime could play mpegs) and 2) that TI should make an organizer app for the TI-83? That will never happen because the TI-83 doesn't have flash. If you mean the TI-83+, then... well, I think the organizer app does run on the TI-83+.

No...he just said that they should make the TI-83 Plus Organizer app free, since no one buys it...he has it, but the only reason he does is because it more than likely came with the TI-83 Plus SE. He apparently just doesn't like putting the +.

Just because you don't want to pay for it doesn't make it crappy. ;-) I'm not entirely sure how the 83+ version of Organizer works, since there's no clock. Can anyone answer that?

I actually have it on my SE, and it is HORRIBLE! Basicly, the way it works is you input a date for an appointment. If you remember to check it, in theory, you will look at the day, and see what you have scheduled. But, the reason why it sux is that it doesn't archive the appvar, so if you play any games and the calc crashes, you loose your assignments, your appointments, everything. I use Nifty insted for that reason.

But does it support everything that IE does? Since I program in JS, I appreciate IE because it supports everything important.

And I've seen a lot of sites that, if you look at the bottom, it says, "This page is meant to be viewed with a 800x600 resolution and IE".

Yeah, Mozilla does. Since were all talking about browsers, I like Opera. It does everything, and has lots more features than anything else.

And as for those pages that talk about needing IE, those are made by people who develop, are run by, or have some affiliation with Microsoft. Plain and simple, it doesn't matter which browser you use, the page looks the same.

Actually, since Mozilla is standards-based, your page will appear more "correctly". For instance, all of you IE people miss out on the little 32x32 pixel calculator that appears in the URL when you visit ticalc.org. (Or the slash and dot logo at Slashdot, or the G at Google, etc.) Mozilla does support JS, and shows stuff the way it oughta be shown.

How come that's never happened to me? If by 'Fatal Error', you mean the BSOD or something similar, then no, I get that extremely rarely on my Windows 98. And it's usually because I do something stupid with the USB port and my digital camera. Not because it's run for over five mintues (we keeps ours on all day without problems).

The only things that you could really complain about Windows are everything relating price or open-source programs. Otherwise, I think Windows is the better option.

Quicktime is very good quality, and I (and many other people) am morally opposed to realplayer. I don't know about now, but older versions would try to take over your computer, associating themselves with file types that you didn't want, etc.... In short, Realplayer is dying; I can't remember the last time I saw a site that had Realplayer exclusively.

Good old Apple and their Quicktime...
RealPlayer (which they actually now call RealOne Player) often seems to unnecessarily use up system resources and spyware is (I think) implemented in the program. KaZaA is another evil program with spyware. For music, I'd choose Windows Media Player over Real any day.
Meanwhile, I guess I'll wait the remaining minute or two for the movie to finish downloading on my 56k modem. . .

I agree... I am opposed to Real Player.

One time, I made the mistake of letting my sister and my mom install a newer version of QuickTime. When I came back, I had to re-associate just about every graphics/media-type file with their original programs and icons. That took me a long time. Not that I don't like QuickTime, I do. I'm guessing it gave them some confirm box that said "Would you like to associate some files with QuickTime?" and they probably just hit OK, without thinking... LOL

Netscape did the same thing about a year ago. I about killed it.
