Actually, saying "Uh guys, this was a post that I found on another site, which has also been copy/pasted countless times in other forums, and so here's the link" would have been going out of my way.
I just did the easiest thing and copy/pasted.
Doesn't look like I went out of my way to do anything, really.
I hope you feel the same way when you lie to your children about Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy.

It's a common misconception, because for certain reasons Apple doesn't openly acknowledge their relationship with Corning.
It’s well documented in the Jobs biography his early dealings with them when creating Gorilla Glass.
But if you look for it, there are clues dotted around.

I'm not 100% sure why Apple doesn't advertise their use of Gorilla Glass, but they do use it.
Some more articles that talk about it:
