Review: ViewSonic VX3276-2K-MHD 32-inch WQHD IPS Monitor

Monday, October 19th, 2020

The ViewSonic VX3276-2K-MHD is a great monitor for increasing the screen real estate of your computer, in this time of #WorkFromHome because of the COVID-19 pandemic. I use it to extend the display on my notebook computer to enlarge the total screen workspace in order to increase the efficiency and productivity of my daily work.

The latest addition to my #WorkFromHome setup (laptop not included): the ViewSonic VX3276-2K-MHD 32-inch WQHD IPS Monitor. Notice the frameless design. If your desktop has the space, I find the 32-inch monitor the optimal size to increase productivity without being too huge to become a strain on the neck when viewing the top of the monitor.

A large monitor is a “productivity-multiplier” and one of the best investments you can make to increase the efficiency of your work on a computer.

Connecting the monitor to a desktop or notebook computer, the monitor serves as a second monitor to extend the screen real estate of a small laptop screen or the first desktop monitor.

A large external monitor is a “productivity-multiplier” and one of the best investments you can make to increase the efficiency of your work on a computer. This is the ViewSonic VX3276-2K-MHD 32” WQHD IPS monitor.

Friday, May 22nd, 2020

Microsoft Build 2020 was the first time the annual developers’ event was held completely online, because of COVID-19. Here are some interesting snippets from Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella during his keynote address for the conference.

“Already, we've seen something like two years' worth of digital transformation in just two months. And we've seen how critical digital technology is in the three phases of this crisis, from emergency response to the recovery phase to the reimagining the world going forward,” said Satya Nadella, Microsoft CEO at Build 2020.

“Already, we’ve seen something like two years’ worth of digital transformation in just two months. And we’ve seen how critical digital technology is in the three phases of this crisis, from emergency response to the recovery phase to the reimagining the world going forward,” said Satya Nadella, Microsoft CEO at Build 2020.

How has developers come together with those on the frontlines in the fight against COVID-19?

Here were some examples that Nadella highlighted.

  • At Johns Hopkins University, epidemiologists and software developers created a canonical dashboard to track the spread of COVID-19.
  • Adaptive Biotechnologies is using cloud compute and AI to decode the immune system’s response to the virus.
  • In the United Kingdom, a cross-section of manufacturers adjusted their production lines to build ventilators for the NHS, using mixed reality to guide workers through the process.
  • The NBA is using the power of the cloud and Xbox to engage fans and maintain the joy of the game.

What would developers need to be capable of going forward?
