A decidedly old-school industrial era company that specialized in making glass, Corning is getting rich of another boom — this time from smartphones like the iPhone.

Missed that! Have you ever been to their plant in Corning, NY? Kind of cool. Not too far from their there used to be Case and Zippo too… 2010-08-08 3:30 pm DrillSgt Ah! Missed that! Have you ever been to their plant in Corning, NY? Kind of cool. Not too far from their there used to be Case and Zippo too… The Corporate HQ and main plant is still in Corning NY. 2010-08-08 9:18 pm Tuishimi Ugh, just noticed all my typos. My eyes, fingers and mind are all getting old. 2010-08-08 4:58 pm Dryhte Too bad I didn’t find out about this sooner. Once many articles about the market situation of a company like this surface, it tends to be too late to buy their stocks (I was lucky and got into AMD at 2.4$ ) 2010-08-09 6:57 am ozonehole If Corning is smart, they’ll keep their factory in Kentucky and keep the technology a closely-guarded secret. If they decide to “save money” by going to China, then it’s goodbye and goodnight – their technology (and markets) will be stolen no matter what kind of “patent protection” they think they have. 2010-08-10 3:37 pm vodoomoth There’s just one thing I didn’t understand, when reading the “Is Gorilla in my device?” page on the Corning site: Corningâ€™s Gorilla glass has been designed into more than 100 models by 19 major brands. Due to confidentiality agreements, there are certain customers we are not allowed to talk about externally. The brands and models we are permitted to speak about externally are listed above. I just fail to see the reason that causes a company to hide its usage of this product in a specific model.
