You must mean 1984. The Apple II did not exist in 1974.
The last calculator I bought was an HP model. I had to buy it, because it was one of the only ones allowed for the Engineer’s License exam. It was very reasonably priced. Of course, I have an HP41 simulator on my phone. :)

It’s stupid to think a slide rule is superior to a calculator. A slide rule is accurate to very few significant digits, far less than a calculator. What’s “better” about “thinking” Pi is 3.14, as opposed to what Jason cited?

That’s a silly idea. The time of day is exactly that—The time of DAY, ie, the position of the sun. At any given moment, that position is different at different points on earth. So forcing everywhere on earth to have the same time makes no sense.
