They didn't mention the fact that this stuff was invented in 1962 and has been sitting around looking for a purpose. Interesting fact.

 

This is from the AP story: CORNING, N.Y. (AP) -- An ultra-strong glass that has been looking for a purpose since its invention in 1962 is poised to become a multibillion-dollar bonanza for Corning Inc.

No Bezel and no glossy reflective screen? I am in, I would replace all of our monitors imediatly. We have bought our last glossy reflective screen no matter what. No more glossy notebook or monitor screens.

I work for Corning and gorilla glass is a excellent product.  Too bad they are not building that factory in USA...

Would it be any different than the old CRT glass where we had to eliminate any light in the room so not to be reflected off the screen?

Well, I would more than welcome it if it really means the end for the bezel.

I would order three monitors the minute they get reviewed.

I saw a 46" LED-lit HDTV by LG the other day employing the Gorilla glass. It was super clear. The bezel was only about 1/2" thick! The entire front tv was actually a glass substrate (the bezel was underneath the glass - kinda like HP's Infinity Display). And the depth of the tv was under an inch! My jaws just dropped when I saw the tv - I felt like Samsung always dominated other brands when it came to tv design, so seeing that this LG looked better than a Samsung was different. It was the first time I felt justified paying $2300 for a 46" flatscreen.
