Calculators Before The CPU|
|I wrote this article for the ASME Mechanical Engineering Magazine for their September, 2014 issue. I made the claim that the introduction of the Texas Instruments TI-30 scientific electronic slide rule caused the death of the slide rule, and received some flack from readers who insisted that the Hewlett-Packard HP35, released in 1972 at $395, was the first scientific calculator that killed the slide rule industry. they missed my very poorely explained point. Like the first automobiles that were produced, which were very expensive, the HP35 was like the "Winton" which was too expensive for the average worker (or student). It wasn't until Henry Ford used mass production and interchangeability of parts to bring the Ford Model T from a starting price of $700 down to $200, when he sold a million of them, did the horse and buggy begin to dissappear. The other car makers still tried to keep their prices high, like HP, and a very small percentage of the populace could afford their autos. The TI-30, with its single LSI chip, came out in June 13, 1976 for $25.00, and, for the first time, the electronic scientific slide rule cost less than the equivalent analog slide rule calculators made by K&E. It was after that that the families who owned the slide rule companies stopped manufacturing them. TI must have learned from Henry Ford, who wanted to serve the people, rather than the board of directors.|
