Change Calculator modes via the zoom button
Authored by: tancurl on Jun 23, '06 07:55:07AM
It's not a "maximise" button.

From the apple HIG:
"Your application also sets the values for the initial size and position of a window, called the standard state. Don't assume that the standard state should be as large as possible; some monitors are much larger than the useful size for a window."

and

"The user can toggle between the standard state and the user state by clicking the zoom button."

So in an app like Calculator or iTunes mixer where there is no "user state" the zoom button toggles between several different standard states... which is a little weird I guess.
