    Probably because the old calculator icon looked too much like the new folders!

    That is a good idea.

    I'm surprised nobody else noticed yet. I noticed because I keep clicking on a folder instead of Calculator.

    They've changed that icon too many times... I think I've seen three different default folder icons since it was released...

    Same here, it looks good against the wallpapers imo.

    @ RyanTaylor that's an interesting theory, I actually bet that's why they changed it.

    Huh, very interesting! Never noticed, and now it's so obvious...
    I still think they just like to mess with that icon though. I mean, come on, a revision in EVERY iteration of the OS? That's just plain silly.

    Figures, but did you know they have changed the calculator icon for every major update, so they are on like the 3 or 4 calc icon now.

    I'm pretty sure it stayed the same between 2.0 and 3.0.
