No. It's just a bit creepy how you copied a clearly personalized post word for word. Looks like you went out of your way to make people think you wrote it rather than just pasting the link.

Did you see how long that post was? How the heck could I not copy/paste?

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.

Gorilla Glass is used on every iPhone.

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.

For example.

It was more directed to you rather than him. You praised him for being intelligent, which I do not deny that he is or not, but I was just saying that post was not his own words.

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:
