Hey I didn't know google could do advanced maths. Those operators should come in handy. Thanks for sharing.

Hi John D,

Thanks for your comment, this is just the beginning of Google. Google will do more in the future, trust me.

I had used some of those google featuers earlier. It's so cool when I type in '200 US dollars in euros' and hit the search button it has the intelligence to launch the calculator app and show '200 U.S. dollars = 150.398556 Euros'
