Google Calculator gone?

Comments Filter:
  • "1+1" does come out as "4".
    Maybe the more obscure types were removed.
    As this is 8? hours later, 11pm EDT, maybe they fixed it.
  • In *nix, there's a nifty command-line tool called "dc" that does calculations for you. Who needs Google?

      Because I have Windows at work, for one. Because just typing "2*345/65.3=" into the Google search bar in the browser I have open anyway is at least as fast as typing it into the terminal, even when that is already running dc - no, wait, I'd have to do NPR it first. And last but not least because Google Calculator lets me convert "5 rods/hogshead in mpg" as well as combine that with some currency conversion with close to actual rates.

How can you work when the system's so crowded?

Working...
