Each year Corning tries to outperform its previous class of Gorilla Glass. With 2.0 at the 2012 International CES, we thought they couldn't do one better, but this year we were proven wrong. Of course, with Gorilla Glass, it's all about the live demo, but here's a quick rundown. The new Gorilla Glass 3.0 with Native Damage Resistance (NDR) can be made as thin as .5 nanometers and up to 2nm and is able to withstand scratches of over 7 Newton of force and critical loads of up to 15,000 grams before cracks will start to appear.
Corning says that the glass should be available to over one billion devices moving forward. So, if you're in the market for a new phone in the coming year, be sure to be on the lookout for one with the toughest glass to-date on protecting that precious screen.
With over ten years of audio engineering experience, Nick's addition to PLuGHiTz Corporation is best served when he is behind the mixing board every Sunday night to produce the audio side of F5 Live: Refreshing Technology, Piltch Point and PLuGHiTz Live Night Cap. While mixing live every week, his previous radio show hosting experience gives him the ability to co-host as well, giving each show a unique flare with his slightly off-center, yet still realistic take on all things tech. An integral part of the show, you can find Nick always enveloped in coming up with new (and sometimes crazy) ideas and content for the show and you can always expect the most direct opinion on the stories that he feels need to be shared with the world. During the few hours where Nick isn't sleeping or working on ways to improve the company, he spends his free time going to hockey and football games and playing the latest titles on Xbox 360. Email him for his gamertag and add him today for a fun escape from the normal monotony and annoyance that the Xbox LIVE gaming community can sometimes be!
