5.1. Calculator

The Calculator is the only built-in program you can operate without a stylus. The buttons are so big that you can tap all the buttons with your fingers (see Figure 5.1). In other words, the Calculator makes the PalmPilot the world's most expensive five-function pocket calculator. (On the other hand, I've seen grown men pull out $5,000 laptop computers to calculate their share of the dinner tip.)

Figure 5.1. The Calculator, on the original Pilot (left) and on later models (right). Can you see the difference? Hint: compare the + buttons.
