Corning presenta el Willow Glass, un cristal para pantallas flexibles

| | 2 comentarios »

Di un nombre de cristal para pantalla móvil que conozcas. Si has dicho alguno, probablemente ese es Gorilla Glass, el cristal que llevan los dispositivos móviles más punteros del mercado. No es raro que lo conozcas, su eslogan reza precisamente eso, “será el único cristal de pantalla que conozcas”. Corning es la empresa que lo desarrolló y lo fabrica actualmente. Y ellos mismos son los que han anunciado el Willow Glass, el cristal para pantallas flexibles que, supuestamente, hace que estas sean más curvables y más baratas. Willow Glass, ¿formará parte de nuestro vocabulario dentro de unos años?

La nueva Willow Glass es delgada y resistente, aunque era lo mínimo que se podía esperar de Corning, la misma compañía que fabrica las Gorilla Glass, el mejor cristal conocido para un dispositivo móvil. No obstante, la principal diferencia con respecto a su hermana es que este nuevo vidrio es flexible, tratando de adaptarse a los primeros prototipos de pantallas curvas que se están viendo últimamente. Es de sobra conocido que empresas como Samsung y LG ya están probando pantallas flexibles para sus dispositivos móviles, y Corning quiere aprovechar y ofrecerles un cristal que sea el homónimo de las Gorilla Glass en las pantallas rígidas.

Además, algo con lo que ha jugado Corning es con el hecho de que para las fabricantes este cristal podría ser más barato incluso. Aunque suponemos que el coste de un cristal resistente y que además sea curvo de la misma calidad es mayor que el de uno rígido solamente, también hay que se ha tenido muy en cuenta al desarrollo las Willow Glass, y es que estas se almacenan y transportan en rollos. Esto hace que sea increíblemente más fácil y más barato el trabajar con ellas. Solo hay que pensar en la cadena de producción, que desplazará los cristales como si fueran un papel. En el caso de las Gorilla Glass tenía que recogerla del contenedor, moverla con precaución, porque era sensible, y situarla en el dispositivo. La Willow Glass es mucho menos sensible y facilita mucho el trabajo.

De momento, no se han dado detalles ni de cómo está hecha, ni de cómo se comporta, ni la tecnología utilizada para fabricarla. No se ha especificado, por ejemplo, si está pensada para dispositivos con una pequeña curva, o dispositivos flexibles que se irán curvando, o incluso móviles que se pliegan. En cualquier caso, seguro que es muy positivo para las fabricantes el ahorro de costes de este cristal, algo que las empujará a seguir trabajando en las pantallas flexibles.

    I have been in your shoes and have spent many hours online reniarchesg and trying to find the right one. The one thing that I ended up figuring out is that there are no true work from home jobs. In a work from home job you usually start out working for a company and then for whatever reason, sometimes, the company will let you take your job home; thus work from home job. I would never pay a company to work from home.However, there are many work from home e2€œopportunities.e2€9d These opportunities provide you with the vehicle to work from home and build your own business. The difficult or frustrating part about finding the right opportunity is that there are many offers that are not legitimate, but scams. Theses scams make it difficult for the companies that truly offer a legitimate opportunity to work from home. Usually, work from home opportunities have a small investment to start your own business. These are okay as long as they are around $100, anything much more than that and I would stay away. Also if they require a monthly overhead to run the business it should include things like your websites, training, back office system, and support. Remember any business that you start and want to continue will always have start up costs and monthly expenses, if it doesn’t then it is probably not a legit business. I am a stay at home mother of 2 (ages 4 and 2). My husband works 6 days a week and I do not have much help in the area of child care for my children. On my journey to finding the right work from home opportunity I tried everything from selling vitamins, lotions and many other product based companies. I also looked into processing information online. What I realized with all these companies is that I usually put more money back into my business and ended up with lots of product I really did not need. I also was very skeptical of some of those online work from home websites that really never got to the point of what I would be doing to earn income.Finally, I was given information on a legitimate work from home company. At first I was very skeptical and paid no attention to the information. Then one day my mother needed to have some dental work done but had no insurance. I remembered that I had some information on discount dental plans. Once I researched the information I had been given, I realized that I could provide my mother with a way to pay less for her procedure and earn an income for signing her onto the discount dental plan. I have been with the company since and am on the fast track toward building a residual income.I work 15 hours a week (give or take a few) for a National Discount Medical Benefits Company. The company has been in business for over 16 years and is continuing to expand! We have been featured on 60 minutes , The New York Times , Wall Street Journal , Time Magazine , and American Medical Review as one of the most reputable, legitimate home based companies. We are members of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Dental Plans and the owner of the company sits on the board of The Consumer Health Alliance, which we are also a part of their membership.Our company addresses the number one problem in US, which is that 70% of Americans can’t afford or can’t get health insurance for whatever reason. We are an alternative for people who are suffering with their health because of this issue. Now to work for our company you don’t have to know everything there is to know about Health Care. Our company will train you on how to communicate our services to those who need it. We have over 2 million members that use our plans and save money on their health care. When you work for the company you are able to set your own hours and build a residual income while you work. Because we get paid month after month, year after year for the work we do our income is always increasing and we get paid even when we done2€™t work. The company also does not enforce a monthly quota, which was important to me. I wanted to have the flexibility to work when I wanted and how much I wanted. Of course the more you put into your business the more income you will receive. Some of the benefits we offer are 401k, direct deposit, life insurance and a family benefit package for your entire household. The next best thing is there is no cold calling, telemarketing, stocking of inventory, collecting of payments, and no home parties! This was very important to me as I had the child care issue to deal with and wanted to be able to stay home and work without having to leave my house. Another great thing about our company is that we all work together to as a team. We are not out to compete with our fellow representatives. Whenever I need advice my team is there to help me to be a success. This was also very important as I was new to the business and wanted the team support you get working a 9-5 job without having to work the 9-5 job. I have also made many friends along the way and still have the interaction with adults while taking care of my children at home.I guess I could go on and on about what we do and how we get paid, but the best thing for you to do is research the company for yourself and determine if it is right for you.

    I know a lot about this topic so please foigvre the length of this reply. I have a lot of good info for you. I am a mother of two little girls who are actually tugging on my arm as I write this so I will try to be brief. Many people are looking for work from home companies. All the scams definitely create a big problem but also, there is a problem of people misunderstanding the difference between work from home jobs and work from home opportunities. There really are not work from home e2€œjobse2€9d. To get that you have to start working for a company in their offices first, then they MAY allow you to take the job home.Most of the work from home opportunities that are legitimate offers are not an hourly pay type job. They are business opportunities that help you in starting your own business from your home.What you should do first is to decide if you are simply looking for an hourly rate type job or if you are looking for more of an opportunity for additional income such as what you would make in your own business being your own boss from home. Many say a JOB stands for Just Over Broker and I have found that to be true as well. I never got anywhere working for others. Small home businesses have some small costs involved, less then $500 to start is reasonable and I would stay away from those wanting $1000-$5000. It doesne2€™t cost that much to start and run a home business so you shouldne2€™t pay it. The real ones will have a small monthly overhead as well. Should be around $50 a month but no more then $75. And everything should be included from your web sites to training and team support to back office accounting and booking. Ite2€™s ok to pay this overhead because ite2€™s a business, they cost money. Ite2€™s not reasonable to assume you can run a business from home with a website, accounting, bookkeeping, payroll, processing and more for free so do keep that in mind as you search. If you are coming across places that say free then I would RUN done2€™t walk the other way! They never are. I tried them many a times and 3 weeks later I had to buy this and 6 weeks later that. After 6 months these e2€œfree businessese2€9d had cost me over $800 on average.Ie2€™m a stay at home mom of two little girls as I mentioned, ages 1 and 3. I work about 15-18 hours per week for a National Medical Benefits Company. This is a home business, a nationally known and reputable home business which is what you need to make sure you are looking for. I have been with the company almost a year now and I make over $3500 a month! In your first month, depending on how many hours you can work, I have seen people make anywhere from $500 to over $3000. And your income will increase each month because we get paid residual income as well. If I continue on as I am going at the end of the year I will be making $6000 a month. My friend Becky from South Carolina started 2 years before me and she is now making $102,000 a year with this company.The best part is they have 401(k), direct deposit, life insurance and a benefits package most of which you get from day one. In addition, there are no products, no hard selling or pushing, no cold calling, no home parties and no telemarketing! That was VERY important to me.I absolutely love working with them and I can’t believe I am making what I am making and in so few hours per week. The neat thing is there are other people on your team that you work with so you are never alone. You have great team support and you get to know the other people on your team pretty well. The support is great but I have made wonderful friends as well. I think thate2€™s important too, especially being at home!I was a bit apprehensive at first because I know a lot of companies are not legit but this company is the number one National Medical Benefits Company in the US. They are a member of the US Chamber of Commerce, and the National Association of Dental Plans and the owner of the company actually sits on the board of The Consumer Health Alliance to which we are also members. Also they were featured in e2€œThe New York Timese2€9d, e2€œWall Street Journale2€9d e2€œTime Magazinee2€9d and the e2€œAmerican Medical Reviewe2€9d. Even e2€œ60 Minutese2€9d with Morley Safer did a big special on this home based business.Even more then all this is they are accepted at over 100,000 retailers nation wide. These are fortune 500 companies like Sears, Target, Walgreens, CVS, Wal-mart, Publix and more. These companies would never work with a company that was any thing less then reputable. That made me feel very good about working with them knowing they were accepted at these stores that I frequent. Also now of course being with them I get the dental and vision benefits for free and I saved over $150 on my last visit to the dentist! Thate2€™s just a beautiful perk! : – ) When I first started I just felt very safe with them, that and my friend was already making so much money with Ameriplan. But at this point I feel a sense of security financially that our family has never had before. That plus LOVING what you do? What could be better? Check them out!
