The Future of Foldable Smartphones: The Good, The Bad, and The Worst

Even though the idea of a foldable smartphone is as old as the hills, the desire to embrace an elegantly flexible device had never seemed more passionate before. What appeared to be merely a flash in the pan not too long ago has seemingly brought the entire smartphone industry to a standstill. Suddenly, almost everyone is looking forward to a phone that can bend gracefully and also double up as a tablet. From a practical point of view, the prospect of having a device that can meet multiple needs...

The Craft Beer Scene in the Finger Lakes of New York

I tried an unfiltered cask ale from The Beerocracy, a cream ale with corn and honey from Grist Iron Brewing Company, and Slo’ Mo’ IPA from Empire Brewing my first night in the Finger Lakes and knew this was going to be a good trip. For a few days after I drank my way across the state, trying a few flavorful beers paired with cupcakes at Felicia’s Atomic Brewhouse, then had a...Read the whole entry... »          Related Stories Afternoon Hedonism With Texas BBQ and Pie43 Beers From 4 Historic...

SEC hits failed Apple sapphire glass manufacturer with fraud charges

Way back in 2013, Apple spent a whopping $578 million on sapphire glass. The sum, spread out over four installments, was an advance to GT Advanced Technologies. Already in use on the company’s home buttons and camera, the plan was to implement the extremely hard material on a larger scale, replacing Gorilla Glass in the process. The following year, however, GT exited the business. The company shut down its plants, sold off its furnaces and announced plans to settle its debt. Today, the U.S. S...

Is the Samsung Galaxy Fold a bad omen for foldables?

I wrote a lot about the Galaxy Fold here. After a week with the device, I was left with mixed feelings independent of the whole ongoing display saga. The TLDR; of it is the story of a first-generation device that’s full of promise but still a bit clunky and prohibitively priced. Of course, the real reason we couldn’t possibly recommend the device is the high percentage of . Samsung issued a handful of early units to reviewers and multiple devices returned with broken screens. Samsung was qui...

The Samsung Galaxy Fold fiasco is the best example yet of why Apple always waits to get into new markets (AAPL)

On Wednesday, some reviewers said that theirSamsung Galaxy Fold foldable smartphones had broken.  The issues show that Samsung took shortcuts to get the Galaxy Fold to market — and demonstrate a surprising lack of attention to detail. It's enough to make one appreciate Apple's philosophy of being right, not first: It might very well be years before Apple releases its own foldable smartphone, but it's hard to imagine it ever showing reviewers a device in this bizarrely disappointing state.

The Pyrex Glass Controversy That Just Won't Die

Clear glass Pyrex cookware is practically an American icon. With its pleasing heft and remarkable resilience, these famous clear pans have been essential when cooking biscuits, casseroles, and pies since 1915. There’s only one problem. A few years ago, the pans started exploding when they got too hot—which is ironic…Read more...

Gorilla Glass-Maker Plans To Produce Glass Suitable For Folding iPhones

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: According to Wired, glass-maker Corning is "working on ultrathin, bendable glass that's 0.1 millimeters thick and can bend to a 5 millimeter radius" that may be usable for smartphone displays within two years. Corning produces Gorilla Glass used in Apple's iPhones, as well as in phones made by other manufacturers like LG, Asus, OnePlus, Nokia, Samsung, and more.

Corning working on truly foldable Gorilla glass

Foldable phones are slowly making their way, whether you’re ready or not. However, it seems like they're coming whether they're ready or not given how the software remains untested or nonexistent and the prices are on the higher side. But those potential issues can be fixed, but the real thing for which you should hold out for is the glass.   The glass is strong and durable and hard to scratch and easy to see through to the bright and shiny OLED pixels below. Glass can fold, but it can’t flex...

The Durable Glass Bendy Phones Need Could Be Years Away

I’ve loved the idea of folding gadgets ever since Arthur C. Clarke talked about flexible “SoftScreens” in books like, The Light of Other Days.

Yousuf Karsh (It Helps to Have a Mission)

Yousuf Karsh, Self Portrait [with 8x10 negative in holder], 1954 Yesterday I journeyed to Corning to the Rockwell Museum with my friend Geoff Wittig. He's a primary care physician from nearby* Dansville and, despite being busy at his job, he's very interested in, and engaged with, art—a longtime landscape photographer, he took up plein air landscape painting four years ago. We went to see a small show of photographs by the late "Karsh of Ottowa," midcentury portraitist extraordinaire.  The ...

US stocks tumble, Dow falls 500 points, after global markets slide

By Alex Veiga, The Associated Press U.S. stocks slumped broadly in early trading Tuesday, sending the Dow Jones Industrial Average down more than 500 points and extending the market’s recent string of losses. The latest wave of selling came as investors grew increasingly unsettled by the prospects for China’s economy and the cost of President Donald Trump’s aggressive trade policies. China reported on Friday that its economy grew 6.5 percent from July to September from a year earlier, the slowes...

Re-Calibrating Willfulness and Enhanced Damages

By Dennis Crouch Corning Optical Communications v. PPC Broadband (Supreme Court 2018) (on petition for writ of certiorari). This new petition for writ of certiorari is focused on the same willfulness issues as another recent petition, Bombardier Recreational Products Inc., et al. v. Arctic Cat Inc., No. 17-1645 (cert denied, October 2, 2018). Does a finding of willful infringement based on a “should have known” standard violate the requirement that willfulness be “intentional or knowing”? The Pa...

Review: iPhone XS, XS Max and the power of long-term thinking

The iPhone XS proves one thing definitively: that the iPhone X was probably one of the most ambitious product bets of all time. When Apple told me in 2017 that they put aside plans for the iterative upgrade that they were going to ship and went all in on the iPhone X because they thought they could jump ahead a year, they were not blustering. That the iPhone XS feels, at least on the surface, like one of Apple’s most “S” models ever is a testament to how aggressive the iPhone X timeline was. ...

Corn (and Kyle Batson's Roof With a View)

A couple of days ago I mentioned that it's tougher to see horizons around here at the end of Summer, before the corn is harvested. This year it's been especially noticeable, because we had a longish dry spell and then a week of rain, so the corn seemed to spring out of the ground all at once; first it didn't seem to be there, and now a week or three later it seems to crowd the view from every angle. In response, David Brown wrote, "Two possible solutions to your corn problem: 1.) A car-top platf...

Corning's New Gorilla Glass 6 Will Let Your Phones Survive 15 Drops

Corning just announced its most durable glass yet: Gorilla Glass 6. "The company says that the glass will survive up to 15 drops from a one meter height and can be 'up to two times better' than Gorilla Glass 5," reports The Verge. From the report: As phones get slimmer and have ever sleeker glass displays, reports have appeared that the slimness may actually cancel out the improvements in new iterations of Gorilla Glass, since thinner glass is weaker glass, even if it's become stronger.

Gorilla Glass 6 is here to withstand your clumsy hands

A bit of good news for the perpetually clumsy. Corning unveiled the latest version of its ubiquitous smartphone-encasing material today at an event in California. Gorilla Glass 6 is, naturally, designed to be more durable than its predecessor, introduced roughly this time two years ago. The big takeaways here are the ability to withstand drops from higher heights and, perhaps even more importantly to most users, multiple drops per device. “On average, in lab tests, Gorilla Glass 6 survived...

I enjoyed another visit from a TOP reader a few evenings ago—Frank Sauer, of Princeton, New Jersey, same vintage as me more or less, a German-born American who still speaks with an accent and happened by chance to end up with a German company when, in the U.S., he moved laterally from Bell Labs to Siemens. Frank was nearby attending a conference on blockchain technology in Ithaca and brought some prints to Thai Elephants in Watkins Glen for me to see. Frank Sauer Ah, prints. I love looking at ...
