What Puts the Gorilla in Gorilla Glass?

You've probably heard the story: When Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) was developing the iPhone, Steve Jobs was disappointed that the keys in his pocket were scratching the plastic screen on the prototype. He then went to Corning (NYSE: GLW  ) , asked for a solution to the problem, and thus Gorilla Glass was born. On 33 brands and a billion devices worldwide, it's probably covering your own smartphone or tablet.
