I’ve been slack, but look at these great resources!!

I apologise for not posting for a long time..I admit I have been slack, and have been revelling in my new found freedom from study (having recently completed my Masters in Education).

However… do I have some sites for you….

Ever wanted to do some mindmapping but haven’t had the software to do so?? Check out bubbl.us….. it is truly the coolest free mindmapping you will ever find@@

Need a calculator for advanced math?? (well, I don’t but some people might…) check out

http://www.calcoolate.com/index.html – the Coolest calculator on the web….

What’s wrong with conventional calculators?

Let’s take the windows calculator as an example.

  • What’s the deal with drawing buttons for each digit on the screen when we have such buttons on the keyboard?
  • You can not type into a number. If you forgot a digit, you have to erase all last digits and retype them again.
    Try to type 12345, and then change to 19345.
  • You can perform just one operation at a time, no “complex” arithmetic like (2+3)*4
  • Why is there no history of previous calculations? The entire memory is 1 number (good old M+ and MR). PCs come today with megabytes of memory, why limit to one?
  • It’s inconsistent. Try this: runs the windows calculator, Select View | Standard and type 1+2*3=. You should get 9 as the answer. Now change to View | Scientific, and type again 1+2*3=. This time you get 7.
  • No unit conversions. Does your current calculator know how many feet are 100 meters? How many Fahrenheit is 32 Celsius?
    How can I replace my windows calculator?
