It would be very hilarious if the coders at Google can handle massive arrays of information processing, but then a simple DivideByZeroException exception could be thrown causing massive chaos to take place

Well, for most people I would agree it's not that useful. As an engineer, this is pretty cool that Google can do it now, but it's nothing new. Wolfram Alpha is still the best when it comes to online graphing.
Now if it could solve differential equations that would be awesome...
22 years ago I had a "fancy" Casio FX-7000G calculator for my GCSEs and then A-Levels that could draw graphs and be programmed and before that it was my older brother's. It was launched in 1985 so there were things out there 25 years ago that could do graphs.
Google takes on Wolfram Alpha it seems. Nice tool for secondary school kids, since they still have to draw graphs by hand, but this can allow them to check their work, or cheat. Not much use past 2nd year university I'd imagine though.
How does this even come close to what excel does. Engineering, science, & accounting work will continue on PCs (including Mac Personal Computers) for many years to come. I don't see any real work being done on the cloud and never on a tablet.
