Google Search Interface Now Sports Scientific Calcultor

On HTML5 enabled web browsers it appears as a full scientific calculator (seen in the screenshot above) but on mobile devices it only shows the full spread of buttons when viewed in landscape mode.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.
