The "Evolution of the Monitor" -- Microsoft's Smart Displays (BBHR 11/24/2002)

  • Microsoft has announced products embodying another part of the promise from Bill Gates' speech at the show a year ago. ViewSonic's Windows Powered Smart Displays embody the first versions of Mira: wireless touch-screen LCD monitors let users carry their XP Pro PC desktops around the house.
