We apologize for the lack of news updates this year. Life and time
restraints have been a problem, certainly not the lack of news. We
haven't forgotten, though, and if you'll excuse the brevity and my
boring, non-Ryan-esque writing style, I'll try to do a little bit of
catching up while we look for a more permanent solution.
Early this year,
another Terry Cavanagh Hexagon clone, this time for the TI-83/84 Plus.
It's hypnotic just to look at.
Martian had also been busy creating
a series of
TI-84 Plus CSE ports of educational Nspire apps from TI's
Part 1 and
This year also saw, barely two years after the introduction of the
TI-84 Plus CSE, the launch of the (confusingly-named)
Plus CE. Except in France, where they released
similar model named the TI-84 Plus Protium CE instead. Er, I
mean the TI-83
Plus Pentium CE. Excuse me, the TI-83 Premium
CE. I think. Anyway, the CE has more RAM and uses a more powerful
eZ80-based processor, allowing for greatly improved performance over
the TI-84 Plus CSE. BASIC programs should largely work on both the CSE
and CE without modifications, but ASM programs will need to be
rewritten to run on the CE. The amount of available software, however,
is steadily growing.
Also, just in France, a TI-82 Plut—um,
Advanced was released, which
to be like a monochrome TI-84 Plus with a Push-to-Test LED,
but without assembly-language support or installable flash apps.
That's all I have for now, but stay tuned!
