Sneak was intrigued to see a string of recent news stories on the web proclaiming that Korean electronics giant LG is to produce new monitors with "virtualisation technology".
The original source of this story seems to be Reuters, which reported that LG's new SmartVine N-series flat-screen monitors are to come with embedded circuitry supporting NComputing's technology for sharing a single PC between multiple users.
This setup has proven popular in education, as you need little more than a keyboard, mouse and screen for each user, with a little box connecting all these up to the shared PC.
In other words, it's basically a thin client terminal.
Pretty much every thin client vendor has offered a terminal integrated into a flat-screen monitor at some point, such as the one pictured here currently available from Igel Technology.
Sneak wondered why this particular announcement should have garnered such breathless headlines, when thin clients are barely considered worthy of attention by most of the IT press.
Could it be because the Reuters story included the magic buzzword "virtualisation"? Sneak will leave it up to readers to decide for themselves.....
