Is it just me, or does anyone else hate these silly looking widescreen monitors and televisions? They are everywhere, nowadays. I did a search on the web, a few minutes ago, and I found some other people in forums, blogs or wherever, complaining about the same thing. The reason I mention this, is because it is getting so damn hard to find computer screens that are specifically made for 1280 x 1024 resolution, 800 x 600 for smaller screens and 1600 x 1200 for larger. WTF? Are they slowly going extinct?
I assume the marketers, manufacturers, and electronic companies that campaign for this widescreen junk...have somehow brainwashed the people into thinking that if it's not a fuckin' widescreen...then you must be out of date, behind, out of touch, and so on.
I understand we all have different taste; I'm just thinking there are more people who feel the same way. I can hear the defense for the wide-ass TVs, as they are trying to get a "theater effect" or whatever. Good for you; glad to hear about your living room being set up like a crazed, cinematic motion-picture theater!
I've seen several, and I detest all of 'em. Some of these so-called "advanced TVs" usually makes people look distorted with big heads or something. ...Or maybe I've just been oblivious to this particular advancement and have only seen the low-grade versions.
But my main concern, is about these mother fucking monitors. I know people that have TVs for those, as well. A goofy widescreen monitor not only looks stupid, to me, it makes me stray too far left or right - I feel the need to scan for shit that I missed on the sides; mind trick, surely. I can't help but call the ones I like (the box screens, square type), a "normal screen."

If you're seeking more selections, go here:
The 'Electronic Haven' via Amazon [Link has been removed] and type in the Search Bar, for example, "19 inch Flat Panel Monitor" or 17 inch, whatever size you're seeking. And good luck trying to find a "normal screen" monitor. Once again, I hate widescreen!
