Interesting story about the beginnings, especially that they had to change out the plastic screen after Jobs came to them with his iPhone that was all scratched up. Gorilla Glass to the rescue, although they won't admit they use it for some reason. Also cool is that the ads all show 9:42, the time the iPhone was launched.
