It's not easy to create your own in-house flight simulator, but you really can't do a stellar job without a serious amount of screen real estate.

Not too many average consumers need one, but they are a miracle-worker for those with multiple machines and screens. Gefen is looking to step up the tried-and-true KVM with the introduction of the next generation 4x1 KVM DVI DL Switcher, which is actually far less complicated than its lengthy model name would lead you to believe.The new version of the device supports the connection of one display using either single or dual link DVI, giving the user more flexibility while supporting resolutions up to 3840x2400....
