Friday's Frets: Computer Monitors


  [fret] (noun): an irritated state of mind; annoyance; vexation.

Friday's Frets are my little rants about something that annoys me, most often without reason. We all have them, those little peeves that you may or may not notice.

From the time we start to read we are given literature that is on standard paper, 8.5 inches wide and 11 inches long.  We are educated using books that are portrait view.

So...someone tell me why are computer monitors landscaper view!! Why are they always wider than taller?

Doesn't this have some sort of negative effect on our brains.  Many websites you visit actually have quite a bit of white space on either side of the primary view. 

I'm aware that I have settings I can change on my monitor that will allow me to set my monitor up as a portrait view but why doesn't it just come standard that way. Shouldn't that be the norm? Who made this decision to flip my world?
