Take the calculator on your iPhone and divide by zero.

It gives you INF which I think represents Infinity. (I think)

It should give you UNF, which represents Undefined, the correct answer.

Nit pick away or tell me I'm wrong!

Just FYI - the Mac version, "Calculator", displays the same messages. "x / 0 = Infinity (INF on the iPhone)" and "0 / 0 = Not a Number (NAN on the iPhone).

edit:
Infinity is the correct answer for x/0.

The two calculators are evaluating the equation, before actually trying to calculate a result.

Another nitpick: PLUS AND MINUS ARE OPPOSITE THEIR USUAL POSITIONS! Look at any Apple keyboard's numpad! Well, except the new wireless one's... that one doesn't count.

My calculator has a complete spasm if you try and divide by 0.

Hey, at least he was honest and said he was bored. If the OP actively sought this out, I'd be a little worried...well, not really. But it would just be weird.

And I'm the sucker who just pulled up the Calculator app on his iPhone to test it out.

*sigh*

For me, the bigger issue is on a Clear (C) key, where is the Clear Entry (CE) key?

FWIW, The Apple Calculator app for Mac OS X gives you the exact same answer:

Where's the % sign on the iPhone calculator?

...That's what I noticed straightaway, that there isn't any. My regular TI calculator has one and most others do.....

Feel free to write your own calculator app with Apple's recently released iPhone SDK.

Very cute

This is where you really miss third party apps. Windows Mobile has some cool calculators available, with basic, financial, scientific modes. They even go out and get the latest rates from the web, so you can do money conversions and interest calculations.

That's what a "breakthrough internet" device is supposed to be like...
