Diamonds Are a Tim's Best Friend

I wonder: will anyone be willing to supply Apple now? They clearly, based on reporting, shafted GT. Nor, for that matter based on reporting, was GT Apple's first choice. Those earlier explorations led to companies saying NO to the terms Apple demanded. Much, if not most, of Apple supply dealings are in the Far East, away from US media reporting. I suspect there are many more corporate corpses over there. Make a deal with the devil...

Apple holds at least one patent on S/G/S and S/G lamination. Given BendGate, the likelihood that a monolithic sapphire screen would survive is slim.

Apple looks to have won this battle. The war is another matter.
