    So, I was doing some banking calculations on my Droid X's included calculator when I got this:

    440.64 - 440.25 = .40999999999

    Someone not program the calculator right? I know when Windows 95 first was released in the '90s the included calculator had some simple math computation problems. Has anyone else had problems like this?

    Ooops, I had the last numbers of my cents backwards. Should have been .24 and .65, which subtracting them should have returned .41. Either way, good to know there's a problem computing numbers with integer and decimal values. I didn't have a problem subtracting decimal numbers alone.

    My bets on the floating point process too.
