Gorilla Glass 2 sheds 20% thickness but keeps all the strength

Gorilla Glass 2 won't say anything about any connection to Apple or Apple products, but live at CES 2012, they're more than happy to share details of their new, 20% thinner, every bit as strong new Gorilla Glass 2.0. Now 20% may not sound like a big deal but a lot of device weight comes from adding glass components to devices and when you shed off 20% you're removing not only thickness but weight as well, giving manufacturers the ability to create lighter, thinner products.

It'll still be a while before devices turn up making use of Gorilla Glass but it's something to keep in mind the next time you hear a company stake claim to the thinnest, lightest of any product. It could be because of Gorilla Glass 2 and you may never know it!

This may not be the ideal place to inquire about this, but I am looking for a pest management business in the pittsburgh region and have no way to find out who's the best. I discovered this company which is actually close to me and wished to see if any person has any assessments on them. Spectrum Pest Control, 3058 West Liberty Avenue, Dormont, PA 15216 - (412) 446-2802
