Corning (GLW) introduces Willow Glass, a thin, bendable glass product that the company boasts could eventually enable displays that are "wrapped around a device or structure." If Willow Glass is widely adopted, it could provide a pricing and margin boost for Corning's display glass business, which is expected to see minimal growth going forward. Samsung, LG, and others are working on flexible LCD and OLED displays that could conceivably leverage Willow Glass.

  • Ten or so years ago, Corning was raking in money selling fiber optic cable. That kind of dried up.

     

    Recently, they were doing OK with "display glass" (whatever that is). That looks like a thing of the past.

     

    What we really need from Corning is an 8.5 x 11" piece of glass to put on top of our brokerage statements to make the numbers bigger.

     

    EVERYBODY would buy one of those.

  • As the USA goes so does the world economy. Now that the government is going to get things moving again things will pick up even TV sales.

  • Corning makes Gorilla Glass. It's on lots of products, including the new Google Nexus4, Microsoft SurfaceRT and many Nokias.

     

    Nokia has video of using their phone as a hammer, and MSFT has video of using the SurfaceRT as a skateboard.

     

    It's a nice product.

  • The apple watch or whoever comes out with it first will certainly be a big hit. No more reaching for the iPhone or holding the cumbersome iPad or even the laptop! Absolutely amazing the speed of technology. Bill Gates will live in infamy and a kudos to Steve Jobs. Together they've changed our world.
