You are at your computer, doing whatever, and you need a calculator. Do you open your computer's calculator app, Google it, use your phone, or grab a real calculator?

I've been an RPN diehard since I got converted in high school, so I reach for an RPN calculator app on my phone.

My phone is usually the most convenient calculator, but I'll use the one on my tablet or computer if that's what I'm using at the time.

I use my computers app, Google if it's real simple, Excel if need be.

Yesterday, one of my professors was on his Surface with his iPad next to him. He got up went over to his bag and found his calculator. I laughed that he had one big calculator sitting in front of him. Basically the whole class (at least everyone who spoke up) said they always use a real calculator. I commented that I must be the odd one then. One of the girls looks at me and asks "You're a techie person, huh?" I thought the whole thing was kind of amusing (I am easily amused), but I was curious if I was that odd.

Of course asking here is probably biased in the opposite direction of what the class was.

Phone app - I generally need one that's good with exponents so I ended up with PCalc Lite.

I really like that the built in Windows calculator can switch to Scientific or Programmer's mode, both of which are very handy to have at any point during the day since I'm already sitting at my computer writing code.

I reach for my trusty HP48GX at work or at home. Have 2 spares in storage. Will use HP48 Android emulator in a pinch.

I just tried that. Doesn't work.

Then I realized that I am on a PC, which doesn't have Spotlight (or Alfred).

I'm a Mac guy, so I didn't even think twice about that. I use all sorts of keyboard shortcuts, but I couldn't tell you what 99% of them are, they just come naturally. Outside of gaming and Excel, I have no idea why anyone would use a PC.  Tongue
