An Apple engineer has had business cards made from the iPhone's front display glass, sourced from a Foxconn factory in China. The lettering is laser-etched into the Gorilla Glass.

The engineer hung it on a lanyard around his neck. “Everyone was grabbing it asking him, ‘How the heck did you do that?’” said the card’s creator, who made a batch of 10 for the engineer.

Unfortunately, you can't order one for yourself. CultofMac notes:

Glass cards might look cool, but they are fragile. The iPhone screen’s Gorilla Glass is hardened to resist scratches, but it cracks and shatters easily if flexed. The cards are expensive. The laser-etching was difficult and expensive. It took a long time to get right.

Despite their appeal, the cards are more of a novelty. They cost a lot, they don't fit in a wallet, and they can break. The engineer's friend made them because he often has meetings with Apple staffers. “I use it just to impress Apple people,” said the cardmaker. “They look at it and they immediately want to know what I do.”

“They are just for fun,” he continued. “I wanted something that was truly unique. I wanted to do something no one else has. And because I work in the Apple ecosystem, it makes a lot of sense to have something unique like this. People talk about it.”

This is how trolls use their imagination treating reality their way in order to pass themselves down and samshit can just flatter all they want. Now samsheeps will just waste more cum spewing shit because that's samsheep logic for ya. Besides your butt hurt crushed in a dump you still have hopes. What's new in shit6 anyway. I bet they'll just wait to be inspired of a genius just to make use of plastic toy for zombies. What hopes are left if it's good for just screen size? In fact what was new in it before iPhone. Just another worshipping wannabe trying to be iPhone just like ads and that's it. This even explains the watch. Did they evenput thought in it?
