Will Apple Get Liquified?

Apple inked a deal with Liquidmetal Technologies recently that gives it “a perpetual,
worldwide, fully paid, exclusive license to commercialize” Liquidmetal’s “amorphous metal alloys” technology “in the field of consumer electronic products.”

In other words, it’s possible that everything from MacBooks to iPod cases could sport really cool-looking, superhard cases. On its Web site, Liquidmetal states that its “alloys represent the first enabling materials technology since the creation of thermoplastics and possess characteristics that make them superior in many ways to other commercially viable materials.” Some of those characteristics include high yield strength and hardness, a superior strength-to-weight ratio and elastic limit, high wear-resistance, and unique acoustical properties.
