Microsoft’s Longhorn to Support Additional LCD on Laptops’ Lid

@ 2005/02/14
Microsoft Corp. said at an event in San Francisco, California that its forthcoming operating systems currently code-named Longhorn would support auxiliary displays on various types of applications, particularly on notebooks. While the concept is hardly a new, support from software giant may catalyze notebook makers to install second display on certain of their notebooks.


The additional display can show various information, including calendar, contacts, tasks, inbox, and media player. PCWorld.com cites Microsoft representatives as saying that in addition to displaying cached data, applications for the auxiliary display could be programmed to periodically wake up the PC, connect to the Internet, synchronize data, and update that on the display.
