Abstract

Many laptop computers use large Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs) as user display screens. Conventional wide-angle view LCD displays are readily observable by anyone nearby. This readability is undesirable, since the laptop computers are often used in public settings, and since users sometimes need to display confidential information in the course of their work using the laptop computers.
