Google now has a calculator function! It even does complex math, natural language processing, measurement conversions and knows about practically every constant you can think of.

Pretty cool, huh?

Pretty sweet stuff, that. :)
Heh. 42 is the answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything, as given by the supercomputer Deep Thought to a group of mice in Douglas Adams's comic science fiction series The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. According to the Guide, mice are 3-dimensional profiles of a pan-dimensional, super-intelligent race of beings. They built Deep Thought, the second greatest computer of all time and space, to tell them the answer to the question of life, the universe and everything. After seven and a half million years the computer divulges the answer: 42.

The calculator doesn't seem to handle numbers 10^309 or larger.

Hmm, that's about equal to standard double precision I think. So no magic in the arithmetic itself :P
