10.4: Be aware of a Calculator widget bug
Authored by: zane on May 24, '05 07:25:37PM
When I discovered many moons ago, that Google can act as a formidable scientific calculator, following the standard PEMDAS routine, I pretty much forgot about every other Calculator that existed. Try "1+2*3" in Google and you of course get the correct "7" result. Google even adds parentheses on it's results page showing how your formula should be formatted correctly, which is great for education!

Since Safari is generally running on my computer 24/7, the Google search box has pretty much become my full-time calculator (and unit converter, spell checker, dictionary... well, CTRL-CMD-D plays the Dictionary role now, but I digress :P).
