Oh come on. Most houses contain some sort of corning product. Insulation, Windows, etc. I'm certain that Corning would have been just fine. Corning has a huge construction material market. Gorilla glass is a pimple compared to the rest of their business.

Materials science is a fasinating subject that it seems to many people take for granted. While this PR video didn't tell us to much I could watch decent videos about engineering all day long. So many small wonders.

I liked the Esprit turbo though never could afford one. I wonder how you would corner in an iPhone johnny I've is getting rid of complications just using a manual interface

I thought it used the new monkey line. That way it could use your phone upside down.
