In another post you said "by '74". Honestly I would have guessed later, but I went to the Intel site to verify. I don't have to put up with AOL's horrible response ;-), so I try to verify dates.
...again, by Intel's site.

You missed my point. Color wasn't of any interest in my application, since my application was to teach *microprocessors*. Even the LS terminals were considered to be a luxury, but I fought for them because they reduced the drudgery of entering small programs. I refused to do the project if I had to teach around a crappy UI. As it was were were doing hand assembly (I bought one with enough memory to run an assembler - for me ;-).
What is still used? Color? IMO it's over-used.
Color to convey time information? ...in list form? Ok...
For adverts? TO show your (red) balance? (somehow I doubt this) Perhaps I'm missing your point entirely.

Umm, you bought $1.59 calculators at the *DOLLAR* store and you accuse *me* of lying? ;-)
Not at all. The "Dollar store" type places buy up odd-lots, discontinued items, and junk that no one else would touch. There is no correlation between cost and price.
I wonder where the chips are made.
You missed a *lot*. I was surprised when a non-technical female acquaintance was bitching about HP calculators going away. I promptly sent her a few HP clones for her WinWhatever desktop.
That was after '73.
TI? Didn't they make crystals a few years back? ;-)

In fact color wasn't an issue, since no one knew what to do with monochrome. Visicalc made the PC more than any other single invention.
