Sound from TI calculators

Evan Blass of Engadget natters on for 145 words about playing music on a Texas Instruments graphing calculator, without mentioning exactly why the story is impressive. What he doesn't make clear is that TI calculators don't have any kind of sound capability, and the audio is being played by manipulating the serial link port.

While you often make valid criticisms, I have to wonder if now you're just being nitpicky.

Well that's fair enough, but this wasn't intended as an "Engadget did this and therefore they suck" type post. One of the points of this blog is to fill in gaps that the gadget blogs often leave, and that's all this post was meant to do.
