Google Calculator

Google continues to show off its computational surpluses by integrating a calculator into the search box. Are they trying to build a command line for the web? I wonder how long until it evaluates Python expressions? Perhaps they could get the CPU cycles from Toolbar users.

Searching for 2^1023 gives you the answer, but 2^1024 evidently overflows somewhere and defaults to a regular search.
