Google Scientists Successfully Split The Bill

from the with-some-help dept

theodp writes "Yes Virginia, there is a Techdirt reader at Google. It took a little public teasing, but Google has quietly fixed the formula bugs in its YouTube-hyped Shared House Expenses spreadsheet template, which can now correctly split roommates' bills three ways (before and after). And so ends another episode of life imitating The Onion."

    As long as you don't move the French Bread too often, and don't clean the red wine stain on the seat to your left--then there a good chance it'll work in an Italian bistro... ;)
