TI Keyboard: More Information Released
Posted by Eric on 16 June 2002, 08:40 GMT

TI has finally released new information on something that should have come out many years ago, the TI Keyboard. The keyboard, which runs on 3 AAA batteries and contains many nifty features such as compatibility with Microsoft Word, will be available in the fall.

cool, i've already got a keyboard on my PP which has more memory, bigger screen, and much easier to send what i type to my computer - just drop it in the cradle and press the button...

It says on the FAQs page of the keyboard that you can't use the keyboard for any reason other than the NoteCrap APP ;). It also says you can "easily" hook up to your computer with the NoteCrap APP on the Calc, special Computer NoteCrap software and a TI-Connect. If it was any easier, it would be passworded protected with a random alphanumeric password!

He is putting it on every page. I must admit, the idea of an 86+ is _very_ appealing. I am a devoted 86 user for 4 years and I wish that it was fully supported by TI for once. They have always been more interested in flash based calcs than in good calcs. Case in point: TI-73.

why would you want a ti86 plus why not just buy a voyage 200 when it comes out or an 89 or a 92+ theyre better than an 86+ would be

Hmmm ... that's a hard one ... maybe because the 86 is actually allowed on every single test conceivable?

NO MARKET FOR 86

Im telling you the 86 HAS NO MARKET.

I wish you 86ers would understand this.

73- flashable, aimed for middle school

83+ - flashable, aimed for high school. (really through calc AB we never used the 83+ for anything but stuff we could have looked up in a table. ie sin(,cos(,log(,tan(, nDeriv(. the rest is math, and thats what we learned.)

89- college and professional based

so the 86 has no market, it is that easy

The 86 is probably just a game market, because it seems to me like they have many good games for the 86.
DON'T PLAY MEGAMAN86. ITS NOT COOL, FREAK.

Well ... the 86 is designed for the college/engineering market. But when the 89 came out, it kind of pushed it to the side. TI still had a chance to save it though, until the 83+ came around. Then everybody went to that one because it was cheaper and teachers actually knew how to use it. So, the dumb people could actually learn how to add numbers using the calculator without looking in the manual.
I don't know anybody who's used the 86 and 83+ and thought the 83+ was better.

I myself would like to get an 86, but my mom thought I had too many when I bought my SE, and again when I bought my 89. I don't think she'll let me get an 86... (because I can't argue that it's for school, that's what I argued to get my 89:)

I don't see why everyone says the 83+ is "user-friendly." The only thing that makes it "easier" to use is that it has less buttons for dumb people (no offense) to screw up with. The 86, imo, is very self explanatory, and I would say it's even more friendly than the 83+ because of its menus.

Hehe ... I have to agree with your opinion.
You know, I think the reason that TI made it impossible to type in single characters (besides numbers) is, not only to save memory, but so dumb people wouldn't mess up and wonder why they got ERROR 07 SYNTAX errors ...

All the calculators seem to be the same for me in terms of being easy to use :P If you know how to use one calculator, you can easily adjust your knowledge to work on other models!!!

I have used a 82, 83, 83 +, 85, 86, and 89 before.
I own a 85 and 86 and have roms for the 82, 83, 83 +, 85, 86, and 89. My stupid friends with the 82, 83, 83+, 85, 86, or 89 kept on bothering me for games and i had to carry my god damn transfer wire with me all the time since stupid idiots always wanted games!!!

It is not really that different anyway....i can convert basic programs between the 82, 83s, 85, and 86 easily, but the 89 seems to be harder LOL the commands are a bit different with those Forend, Ifend crap :P plus im too lazy to look over the guide for the 89/92s

The 86 has a lot of good games, but you probably need more memory for the god damn calc :P I have all these damn games on my computer and i can only store like 25-30 games max. This really sucks compared to the 83+, 83+ silver, and 89.

God....stop complaining about getting more memory for the 83s!!! This is really stupid when you can carry 1 hundred and fifty games on the 83+ silver and you say that you don't have enough memory!!!!!

What about the 83, 85, and 86??????


Stupid ass texas instrument needs to make some freaking
external memory cards!!!!!!!

all anyone ever wants is games. I'm one of the few people in my school who actually uses my calc for things beyond gaming.

What many people are |3i+(}{in9 about with the memory on the 83+/SE isn't the Flash ROM - we've come to the agreement that we have more than enough of that. What everyone complains about is the relative lack of RAM - there's only 24k, except roughly 2k of it is used by the calc for the OS. I agree with you about the memory cards, but most calcs don't need them for the Flash Rom (those that have them anyway) but for the RAM. =P

Anyways, on an 83+ you can only have 25-30 games max(average-to-good ones, not bad 300 byte "games" that display a 'Q' high up on the screen). That's about the same as the 86, except 86 games can be larger because they have more RAM.

I prefer the 86 menu system over the 89/92(+)/V200PLT's and 82/83(+(SE))'s. You can see a good portion of the menu while writing in the program itself.

And yes, most of the really good calc games I've played are for the 86. For the 89, most of the games I've played are good, but there aren't that many. For the 83+, there's too many bad games and I don't feel like sorting through them for the good ones.

Flashable isn't a valid argument. We are arguing for the creation of a flash version of the 86.

I like that. Password protected with a random alphanumeric password. Only 36!(factorial) possibilities. So it equals 3.719933268E41, or so my TI-83 Plus reads. :) 3.719933268*10^41 possibilities.
