TI Introduces New German Language Websites
Posted by Michael on 3 September 2003, 02:13 GMT

TI has released some interesting (i.e. bizarre) new websites aimed at the European calculator market: calcoolator.at, calcoolator.ch, and calcoolator.de. The Macromedia Flash Player is required to view these sites, which are for Austria, Switzerland, and Germany, respectively. I don't read German, but they seem to be aimed at teenagers, and feature such characters as an overly happy man with a blue goatee. The site is sure to give you a few laughs.

d00d! The eCards on these sites rule! Go to the .at site, go to eCards, and choose Monster. It's my favorite. :-) For some reason, they don't have it on the .de site. :-(

There's an 83+ Gold edition? If Ti really wants to corner the pimp market, they should release a diamond-studded platinum Ti-89. Bling-bling!

I can tell you that if you click on "Das wissensduell" (mouse over the volleyball net) you'll play a game, and if you click on the girl under the umbrella, you'll get the 31337 eCards I mentioned above.

Honestly when the popup came up with the blue haired menace it (literally) scared the batteries out of my ti. I couldnt get anywhere because I nearly had a heart attack after seeing that. ;) anyway they should release one for the United States because i feel left out :P . eCards? ... lol. What is it like yu-gi-oh but you battle with calculators and do stuff like summon Blue-Case Ultimate Voyager ? lol
anyway it sounds like a great idea to get programmers and I hope they will release one for the United states so we can *translate* all the fun. (Make sure you have a BIG picture of the united states on the cover.)

Um, no. eCards would be virtual postcards that you can e-mail to people. Perhaps you were joking, or perhaps you play too much Yu-gi-oh.

The 89 at the German site seems a bit ... different, to say the least. It appears to come with the sketchpad, equation writer, and smg apps already installed. But I speak very little German, so I'm not sure about that. It just has them listed there...

No, they are just saying that those apps (and others) are available.
