Forwarding Address: OS X

Saturday, January 08, 2005


Longhand (not to be confused with Longhorn, which will probably ship someday) is an excellent word processorish calculator. It's a bit hard to explain how it works except to say that it's absolutely nothing like the Calculator util that ships with OS X. Instead of pecking in individual numbers and functions you simply type the equation you want and it gets evaluated, ie:


just like that. It's very slick and fast to use and has already replaced Calculator in my dock. Download

(If it seems like I'm obsessed with calculators, based on the number of recent posts concerning them, I'm really not. I'm just very bad at math).


  • Being bad at math and being obsessed with math are not necessarily mutually exclusive. (i.e. The Bible Code)

  • Try typing


    into google search area of Safari. It works fine. It's usually easier for me to get to google than it is to open a special calculator.
