The campaign failed immensely, dunno what these people were thinking really.

Twin Creeks already developed the same technology, then went bankrupt, then GT Advanced Technologies got their patents and machine ... which they probably wanted to use to manufacture their screens for Apple, but in the end they bought a whole lot of diamond saws and went bankrupt.

Wonder if the patents reverted to the inventors or something and they just decided to try to make the third time the charm ... but the investors didn't bite this time.
