With respect to lights and screens, they operate at different brightness and wavelength frequency. When shopping I'm usually effected by all the different lighting in shops. Does my head in along with the crowds and ambient noise that prevails in these inhumane places.

Point is if you use different brand screens with different brightness settings, without knowing you may be effected by them which could subsequently affect your trading - who knows?

You should rest your eyes by looking at horizons. Give your head a rest too.
eliminating the bezel is never a bad thing for the chart trader. some traders (very few i imagine) look at hard data crossing the desk, place trades accordingly. i am not one of them, give me a good LARGE chart...

i'm on board once the tv's get above 4K..10K!

AWS is strongly recommended for dev work. Turn it on, turn it off. Probably different if its for personal biz but for business good value imo.

Hopefully, you have enough processing power to crunch those xls numbers eh?

All the best

Just tried it. Seems to work. It is an article about electric cars by Quentin Wilson.
Tidal power could produce the electricity in abundance and no emissions.

Here is an interesting article about making tidal electricity in NI at Strangford Loch.
Would it work in the Severn Estuary I wonder.

Looks like an electric bike to me which ofcourse it is with an extra wheel. Best part is it's covered from the elements so can see with improvement in batteries this has some mileage.

I like it. One needs to define a target market to sell it really.
