Google launches 34 button calculator for search results

Google continues to expand its search engine results to create more than just links to content. This week, it was revealed that Google now generates a calculator when you type in, for example, 10 + 10. The calculator has a total of 34 buttons, including some advanced math features such as being able to handle sines, cosines, and tangents.

The calculator feature is one that Google put in the search engine with no fanfare at all. However, it's one of many new search features that the company has been adding for users in the last several months. That includes the recently launched Knowledge Graph search feature, which offers users some related information about their search query in a box to the right of the normal search results.


Well, we think it's pretty cool! You can do it too.

Of course, Google users can still come up with some cool ways to use its already established math-based features. That includes typing in an equation that, when put into Google's search engine, generates certain "images" such as the Batman logo in a graph. No, it's not exactly "math" but it is fun and there are many such ways to use Google's graph feature to create some "interesting" images.

I was very skeptical about Chrome OS when first announced, but since then Google has really started to position itself as the go-to place for just about anything. And with 3D accelerated browsing, I can finally see it being a real contender in the OS market. I can't really think of anything a browser can't do that my desktop OS can.

Thats great. How about you just give me decent search results. Last few weeks I've been more or less FORCED to use Bing for simple searches and guess what. It was MUCH better than Google. Didn't have the first 2 pages of crap to sort through, just an actual usable result. I have a calculator thank you.

I like how you can actually divide by zero without getting an error. You actually get a reasonable result, even if it's not really correct.

Would have been a really cool easter egg to have the page explode or something.
