Imagine having a calculator that can add, subtract, multiply, divide, differentate, intergrate, chat, instant message, web browse, telephone, and listen to mp3's ???

Imaging if the teacher had the abality to give the lecture images in computer format to the students calculators? no need for chalkboard, whiteboard, or overhead projector.. Perhaps the test would be issued over the network to the calculator it's self??? Imagine if some kids hacked the smart-calc.. how easy would it be to cheat on test?

       Having a calculator that could chat and listen to mp3s would be pretty cool, though. (Would they all be into math rock, or what?)

       I was hoping this would be a regular calculator with a wireless connection to a computer. Use it to store your calculations.
