iPods, iPads, even monthly cell phone bills all cost around, or more than, $150.  I don't think the price is too high but Cabe makes a good point that the pricing is going in the wrong direction.  I wonder why.

I would think the $150 pricetag would still be tough for many college students to come up with.

Their price is going in the wrong direction. I have a TI-89 from college, and a TI-80 - a simple calculator for everyday use. But as I use my smartphone more and more for calculations, I wonder if TI will be able to stay relevant.  Once my phone handles differential equations, TI will be in the catch-up game.

I have a TI 81 that I had to save up for in high school.  It has been through a lot, and it is still one of my favorite engineering tools.  The new color version may be just the thing to spur me on to a nee one.  It looks like TI is going in the right direction.

Here are some of the top-paying jobs available to engineers as they grow in their careers.
As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers. 
Obtaining the benefits of a fully digital plant requires IoT connectivity and foresight in the planning process.
Take advantage of the properties of plastic to integrate clever features that benefit everyone. Abiding by these guidelines will prepare you for a smooth design cycle.
2016 engineering grads can expect to earn an average salary of $65,000 right out of the gate. Petroleum engineers' wallets are much fatter, though -- they are expected to earn about $20K more.
