Yeah, knowing how those things go, NE Calculator will have a little bug in it (blame the Pentium I, it's a floating point error) and they can't unwire it because it will mean all the calculations for the last 15 years were wrong and they can't redo them.

Windows Phone had some pretty good bones, but I think Microsoft tried to make it Windows 95 before building DOS first. The thing with DOS is that it was usually pretty darn good at what it did.

        • So after seeing your post I dug further into it thinking that the Win 3.1 calculator would give the wrong answer as well. It does not. I guess they had fixed it by then. I also tried "1 / 3 * 3" and... more

        Which unfortunately is the same as my current email address just at a different domain name. So yeah, it's tagged with "shamrice". They'll find their way here if they need to. :) I was actually okay... more

          What probably did them in was no "Zelda" class app. Oh, they tried Office (it's great to have a version of office on the phone, even if I do have a spreadsheet that makes it cry), but the honest... more
