iPhone calculator app censors itself

Something amusing to end the week. Software developer TLA Systems says it has censored its PCalc scientific calculator application for the iPhone (although its tongue is firmly in its cheek).

To quote the developer’s blog (which also has a screenshot in case you don't have a calculator handy):

“Have you, or somebody close to you, ever turned your calculator upside down and accidentally seen a mildly suggestive word? Have you ever been in a maths class, and had to put up with groups of giggling boys performing elaborate calculations that are not part of the lesson?”

“Simply enter a number such as 5318008, turn the calculator upside down, and the offending word will be discreetly censored. Many common calculator words have been included as standard, and we plan to increase this over time via software updates.”
