10.4: Be aware of a Calculator widget bug
Authored by: starwxrwx on May 26, '05 02:46:45AM

It's not strictly a bug, but it is a very poor decision by Apple.

Cheap, crappy calculators should be outlawed.

Any decent calculator gets the order of operation correct (which, by the way, is called BIMDAS here in Australia). You should not have to think about the order of operation before typing in your calculation.

Anyone who defends a calculator not doing its job properly (and hence has not passed primary school maths) is not qualified to enter the debate in the first place.
