Google.com has advanced searching capabilities like if you type in Google "how many days are there in a year" Google Calculator will work it out and tell you e.g. "5+5" or "5*5"

Key:
+ Add
- Minus
/ Divide
* Times
5Squared = Squared
5cubed = Cubed

Did anybody realise Google has a Calculator?

There are at least two 200 plus pages books about Google and the incredible feats/searches which can be carried out using it...:-)

I have the How to Do Everything with Google book at the moment, which is written by three Google employees/

But I'm somewhat puzzled about these answers...

"5+5" or "5*5"
But I'm somewhat puzzled about these answers...

Why are you puzzled, they work okay for me?

Are you by any chance mistaking this as the answer to "how many days are there in a year".

If so it is a simple misunderstanding, these are other examples of questions you can type into the Google search bar.

>>"how many days are there in a year" Google Calculator will work it out and tell you e.g. "5+5" or "5*5">>

That's precisely what you have written...:-)

In any case there's two possible answers.

..that's precisely what was written...

I agree that is what was written but not, I believe, what was meant, admittedly it could have been phrased better, but I am sure you understand what BEN MARSHALL meant to say.

  BEN MARSHALL 18:09 12 Dec 2005

Thank you for supporting me Stuartli, Admittedly Phono I did not phrase it correctly, sorry for any inconvenience.

And here was me thinking I was supporting you, I understood what you were saying and was just trying to explain.

Oh well!

I am disappointed that I seem to be taking the blame for another's misunderstanding of your initial post.

You seem to imply that the person who questioned your initial posting about Google's advanced features was, in fact,supporting your case, might I suggest that you read the postings again.
