Gorilla Glass, the Smartphone’s Unsung Hero

…I still carry my phone around naked all the time, and there’s not a scratch on it. (To be clear: only the phone is naked all the time.)

What I’ve never understood is how that can be. The screens (and, on the iPhone 4, the back as well) are glass, for crying out loud. People carry their phones around in pockets with keys and change. People drop these things, toss them, scrape them. Why on earth don’t they get totally scratched up?

Fascinating piece by David Pogue. Great to hear of an American company (Corning) getting this right.
