Filed under: DisplaysBenQ's got a new monitor for those that prefer to keep things smaller and squarer than some its more imposing offerings, with its new FP93GP display offering 19-inches of space in the good 'ol 4:3 aspect ratio. The monitor's specs also look to be impressive enough, with a 1,200:1 contrast ratio, 1,280 x 1,024 resolution, 300cd/m2 brightness, 8 ms gray to gray response time, a 178 degree viewing angle, and both VGA and DVI inputs. While it still appears to be listed at the ever-popular "open price," Impress pegs the direct sales price at ¥42,800 (or about $358), which certainly puts it well above the low-end of 19-inch displays.

The Academy for Digital Communication, a part of HU college, recently finished a research about the influence of gaming towards the social life of adult gamers in The Netherlands. A gamer, according to the ADC is someone who plays computergames for at least 1 hour a day.
The results of the research were as following: 71% of all gamers labelled themself as an addict. Amongst these addicts, 44% claims to have severe relationship problems because of gaming, because of giving too little attention to their partner. Also, 32% of all gamers ever had the experience a relationship ended because of their frequent gaming behaviour.
Expectations are, that in the near future, 32% of all marriages cannot take place beacause of gaming. That means gaming is for 32% responsible for failing marriages. The number of singles was already increasing in Europe, gamin behaviour will strengthen this trend.
One student at the ADC made a short movieclip to strengthen the results of the ADC:

"We understand that in the long run the fundamental asset is the installed base of people who are using our products," Raikes said. "What you hope to do over time is convert them to licensing the software."
Not that we haven't known this all along, but it's nice to hear it from the horse's mouth."
