Yes, Peter, there used to be a monitor available for the Mac - was it called
the Radius Pivot - which was the size and shape of a piece of A4 paper, and
had a 90 degree pivot. If you moved it from portrait to landscape or vice
versa it very gracefully faded to black then came back again in the new
orientation. In the early days of PageMaker it was great to be able to see a
whole page at once.

It was black and white with, as I recall, excellent resolution. They never
made one in colour and the idea died. Now, of course, I have a 20" Cinema
Display on my desk so I have all the acreage I could possibly desire.
