    Your next phone screen could be made of sapphire CNN frontpage

    Someone trying to exit Rubicon or is this the possible future?

    Notes of the article:
    Manufactured sapphire could be on screens for smartphones and tablets
    MIT says the screens would be three times stronger than current displays
    Currently, a sapphire screen costs $30 to make, while Gorilla Glass costs $3
    Gorilla Glass maker Corning says its product is moldable and getting stronger

    • google search around. there was actually quite a little flurry of "sapphire screen" articles this week.

      I was just about to sell over concerns that non-sapphire LED technologies + competition were going to kill Rubicon.
      Now, I have to reconsider. This could change everything.

      Dont bank your retirement on RBCN. It is either going to make you rich, or give you a really nice tax writeoff. It isnt likely to hang around and return 12% per year.
