Comment: Its called math (Score 1) 624

Take out the ambiguities of linguistics and you need to remove the ability for it to evolve. The perfect language you seek is math. The issue is the limit of what it can honestly convey.

Look at Esperanto and the wide adoption it has amassed over the last 50 years. Follow their successfukl formula and you should have something less universal than pig latin. With universal translators, the need of a universal language is falling out of necessity more rapidly than adopting a new one for the world will be able to outpace.

You can go ahead and do this. Just realize that there is no way that this will be handled well by an iMac with intel based GPU and RAM on a base model likely starting at about half whatever logic would tell you it should. iPad's with Retina on the first gen got burned, as they were under powered. MacBook Pro Retina's under powered on the first gen, and now this. Early adopters will pay dearly for adopting 8k with such pedestrian hardware specs.

I went to pull up a link, and it seems as they changed this in the latest release of iOS (8.1) . As for using a limited subset of javascript that was quite old, while using a different set for Safari, didn't have any other browser on the same playing field, or responsiveness or capabilities.

I could give a toss what you think, and this information is publicly available. Don't be a ponce limey.

Microsoft was fined, they paid fines, and they had forced official remedies mandated, which they violated as well. The latter part being within the last two you years. You should be ashamed of yourself for coming here and deliberately lying so you don't have a way to get called out for being a shill/asshat...
People like you keep conversations from moving forward. Nice to be that guy asshole.

You scratch my tape, and I'll scratch yours.
