I have the Dell version of that one at home and I'm very happy with it. The work on is the flat 34" LG.
Originally at work I had two pretty crappy monitors and a huge bezel between them. The UW gave up maybe a few pixels on the sides (as I said crappy), but the lack of bezel just makes it so easy to use. Of course, the prior ones weren't IPS and the color accuracy was absolutely terrible so when writing proposals and putting in graphs or pictures I had no clue how they would look in print until I got someone to print it on a nice printer.
I think you're right about the aspect ratio. I think that the human eye is more suited to looking at things left and right instead of up and down so it makes sense. It does mean that I put my start bar on the left though.
I have a 34" flat one at work and a 34" curved one at home. I don't know how to describe it very well, but the curved one seems easier to see. On the flat one I have to let my eyes refocus more when I'm going to the far edges and I don't notice it nearly as much on my one at home. It isn't saving me seconds, but I think it might save me some eye fatigue. I'm not sure though.
It would still be interesting to know to whom you would listen for more than 30 seconds. Actually, hold that thought, let's ask everybody. There's not been nearly enough dissent and flamethrowing this week!
Not at all. I merely found the sound of that girl's singing raucous and not to my liking. There is nothing grumpy in not liking the same things as other prople. I doubt you would enjoy much of the stuff I listen to.
Could you distill that for me a bit, and also include the recipe for what you are drinking.
«There is a spectrum, from "clearly desirable behaviour," to "possibly dodgy behavior that still makes some sense," to "clearly undesirable behavior." We try to make the latter into warnings or, better, errors. But stuff that is in the middle category you don’t want to restrict unless there is a clear way to work around it.» Eric Lippert, May 14, 2008
Currently, playing anything with Girly B results in the device being confiscated. Lady [or Lord if you believe the trash papers] Gaga is veering towards the banned list not for any artistic problems but because I'm sick to death of it. Milly Cyrus and some other bee-atch who's name I've thankfully forgotten are on restricted listening - more than two songs and I start to boil.
Ack Duck are, of course, welcome and openly encouraged. \m/
