  1. this will be able to create a universal and of easy learn universal language that can make us be able to talk with every nation in the world. I will be able to flert with chinese girls at the internet, sex tourism will increase in CHina lol, thanks Google o/

  2. this is all waste of time .. autocorrect doesnt work anywhere, and making it 5% faster doesnt mean, these people will use 5% time, they will produce 5% more garbage and spam .. hence just dont do this anywhere … you are just wasting your time ..

  3. I think it only suggests that you change it, like microsoft Word’s spellcheck. It doesn’t change it automatically. What would be cooler would be if, instead of statistics, this thing used grammar patterns. eg. “met” is a past participle of “meet”; but the infinitive form “meet” is required following “Let’s”, so based off of that it’d change the word. Then again, this wouldn’t work for general misspellings. But still, for grammar check, this’d be cool.
