    Your first calculator

    This category got me thinking . . .

    Which was your very first calculator?

    WinCalc doesn't count

    I'm talking about something physical.

    Believe it or not, my first calculator was an Abacus. I was like five then but still.

    Then in junior high, it was Texas instruments and after that it was various calculators by Casio.

    Which was yours?

    I don't think there are any other major brands that make calculators.

    This

    isn't quite the one I had but it's close enough. You had to do square roots using divide and average. Trig functions were science fiction.
