are familiar with the design of this rare Number Beat? It is nothing else than
a design variation of the TI-1103 and TI-1104
calculators known since 1986.
Texas Instruments introduced with the Personal Advisorô in 1987 a datebook with advice from 52 celebrities. Please remember Bette Midler, Cindy Lauper, Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, Brooke Shields, Bob Geldof, Tina Turner, Martina Navratilova, Tom Hanks and other stars from the 80's. The package included not only the datebook but even the Number Beat calculator.
Dismantling the Number Beat reveals no big surprises. The printed circuit board (PCB) was borrowed from the TI-1103.
