One may think that Email is a fairly new form of communications however it is credited to have been invented in 1972 by Ray Tomlinson who worked for Bolt Beranek and Newman as an ARPANET contractor. By chance he picked the @ symbol to denote sending messages from one computer to another, name-of-the-user@name-of-the-computer.

The Hewlett-Packard HP-35 was first introduced on February 1, 1972 and was the first handheld electronic calculator sold by HP. It was also the first handheld ever to perform logarithmic and trigonometric functions with one keystroke.
