Google Calculator

Google has a new feature I didn't know yet: the calculator. It looks like it can give you the answer to regular calculations (17+4), covert units (12 inch in centimeters or 30 degrees celsius in fahrenheit), tell you the value of constants (the speed of light) as well as to philosophical questions as the answer to life, the universe and everything.

You can also use it for hexadecimal and binary conversion: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=0x21+in+decimal or http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=42+in+binary

Yep, I typed in "how many miles in a marathon" (to get the exact length) and the calculator answered tha one too. Very impressive.

It may already be known.. but it'll also tell you the address of any US phone number.
