So, this may not look smart, but I think it's quite clever.

What's the craze with widescreens, when what we need are high-screens? What was the last action you took right before reading this line? You scrolled down. It’s pretty obvious that what we need in 99% of our time on the web is more height, not width.

Oh, pivot-monitor of 1995 future, where art thou?

Update:

Here you are! :-) Ahh, gadget-world of 2010, thanks for fulfilling my dreams. And thanks, anonymous commentator, for pointing me to it!

I'm picturing you sitting at a Dell LCD that does pivot but you never tried it. There's lots of LCDs that tilt 90 degrees.

Thanks for the tip!
