Here's another read -- difficult, but informative:http://www.compoundsemiconductor.net/csc/features-details.php?cat=news&id=19736047From my reading, I've also learned that sapphire would also be useful in camera lenses, because is conducts all the UV-visible light spectrum and can be used to focus ...This could mean improved iPhone camera optics (zoom, autofocus, etc.)
More sapphire semiconductor uses (emphasis mine):http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sapphire#Star_sapphire
I've been doing some surfing ...It turns out that sapphire may be a faster, lower-power alternative to silicon in the manufacture of semiconductors:http://www.mt-berlin.com/frames_cryst/descriptions/sapphire_epi.htmhttp://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/1998/07/980714072357.htm
There was this techie girl who had two "4"s tattooed on her behind … When she bent over -- "page not found".

Rather, the burn-in would heat the chips and cause them to loosen. You then pushed down on each chip [with power on if you were good at it] and reseat the chip in its socket (usually with an audible click). Rinse and repeat over 24 hours and the chip contacts and socket contactss would acclimate themselves to each other --...
