  1. It’s a square box with an atrocious paint scheme that you’re forced to put together yourself for $200.

    Superb design aesthetic…I must have it!

    I’m still laughing about those “Value Added ” items in the grocery story.

    Funny thing is, most people believe this stuff, but no one seems to believe you when you tell them over 90% of the population are living in delusion.

    When…It’s actually over 99%.

  2. What would be neat, is a small ( no more than 2 feet wide) portable double theatre monitor (say, 18:9 but doubled to 18 by 18) that folds down like a folding smartphone. Or even folds in. Why? So you can pull down the blinds and project behind to a many foot wide view. Then, you don’t need a huge desk, neither. Btw, the aesthetics of teenage are superb.

  3. Can anyone ID that perfectly square monitor shown in the photo of the Computer-1 on the desk? Is that real or is that just a mockup?

    1. I googled “1:1 monitor” and from what I can tell it’s an EIZO FlexScan. They have a few different square monitors in the 24″-27″ range, not sure which specific one this one is though. Seems like they might be the only square monitor manufacturer out there.

      1. Thanks. I found that EIZO too. Might very well be the only one. I don’t think it’s even for sale.
