A gorilla named Motuba that lives at the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo got into a fight sometime last week and ended up with a broken jaw. Motuba is a 27-year-old silverback gorilla and zoo officials believe that Motuba likely got in a fight with the younger gorilla seeking a more dominant position in the tribe. No one witnessed the fight.
Corning, the makers of Gorilla Glass, announced today that they have already begun shipping its second-generation Gorilla Glass to manufacturers, who have plans to release products with the new display material within the first quarter of this year. That means we should be seeing Gorilla Glass 2 on commercially available devices by April or early May.
Today at CES we managed to run into an awesome 82" multi-touch display being ran by Corning. What we have on video below is actually a quick demonstration of the new 82" display showcasing its unlimited amounts of multi-touch points, stylus support, and more from the guys at Perceptive Pixel. What makes this display special is that it's the world's largest Gorilla Glass 2 display.
Corning's got their new Gorilla Glass 2 here at CES, and lets just say its really, really strong. Corning's current 1st gen Gorilla Glass is on many smartphones and devices today but their new glass is stronger, lighter, thinner, and easier to make. Gorilla Glass 2 is so strong we couldn't even get it to break under some seriously heavy loads. Check it out below!
Corning has come correct this week with their second big iteration of the glass that's almost certainly on the front of your smartphone if you purchased a device inside 2011 - Gorilla Glass 2 they call it, and details have been dropped. What you'll be getting here, basically, is a 20 percent reduction in necessary glass thickness with the same resistance to damage that made Corning's solution so popular through the last year. It's "higher functionality from thinner designs" all around this year, and Tough is still Beautiful!
Over the past handful of months, Corning has all but dominated the airwaves when it comes to must-have features on a smartphone or tablet device with their patented Gorilla Glass brand of display covering panes - today they've revealed that the second iteration, Gorilla Glass 2, will make its face known at CES 2012. This new version of the glass solution will bring with it increased functionality for devices with smaller form factors, improved touch technology, "connected devices in new application spaces," and even better durable large-format design aesthetics for you curved-corner lovers out there. The big reveal happens next week, and we're expecting some hammers to help us test it!
Though Corning's Gorilla Glass has all but dominated the review circuit when it comes to must-have features on mobile devices over the past year, it appears that Samsung and Google have opted for a different solution for their next hero device, the Galaxy Nexus. This device will play host to Google's next-generation mobile OS Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is set to have a host of powerful features that make it a force to be reckoned with. Corning has assured the public that lo, and alas, the Galaxy Nexus does not have Gorilla Glass sitting on its front.
Yes indeed, there is still a collection of imperfect translations inside the Google translate world, even if you take the text your translating out of the webpage and jam it right in to the translator in its home. Thusly did Gorilla Glass become Gorilla Ice Cream and "delicious" stylings. Actually that's probably translated correctly, I personally use such tasty descriptors for reviews all the time. That said, there's a release to be had here, a release of information that states the Nokia N9 will be coming out September 23rd on 3 in Sweden.
This isn't a limited edition review, instead this is a review of a limited edition app - interesting, yes? Actually what they're saying is that the app will be $9.99 for the first 10,000 units. What that generally means, when you're purchasing artwork anyways, is that the rest will be MORE expensive. Could it be that this app will tear through 10,000 downloads then demand more money because it's doing so well? Have a look at our miniature review below.
If you like music you might be familiar with the band Gorillaz. They have the videos with animated primates in them. Gorillaz and Korg have teamed up to offer a cool special edition app for the iPad that is a virtual beatbox from Korg. The app is called iElectribe Gorillaz Edition.
