FWIW, it is easy to confuse a dumb and clever design.

-- Example! (in voice of Julius and Vincent from Pulp Fiction)
In Win calc, try typing 2+3*5 =>
you will get 17 in scientific mode, but 25 in standard mode.
Is that dumb? Not necessarily!

In some (or most?) modes log button is treated as an immediate postfix to the number on the screen. This makes possible to do 5 * 3 <log> where log will be applied to 3 only.

However, I have no Mac to test if this applies to your problem. ymmv.
