Ars Technica looks back at the technology that has affected users experiences the most over the years, the display.  From the old monochrome screens with your choice of black and orange, black and green or black and white, to the new displays capable of 1600x1200 and over 4 billion colours.  More than just the pixel count and response rate have changed over the years.

"Computer graphics are taken for granted today. But it has been a long and painful struggle, with

hardware rarely keeping up with the demand for better images. In English, there are a relatively small

number of characters which comprise text. The same is not true of images: graphics are computationally

intensive. They always seem to take as much speed and memory as there are available. But the demand was

high enough that early computer graphics could be fairly crude and still be in demand."
