so, at work and once in a while at home, i’ll walk by someone using the computer and i notice them doing a quick minimize or window switch to hide what they were looking at. i doubt it’s particularly dirty, but its probably something not related to what they should be doing. alyssa might hide a myspace page with her homework website and someone at work might be hiding an irc chat session with a work website. it’s obvious what they are doing, usually. if this happens once in a while, not a big deal, but for some people, every time you walk by (especially if you walk quietly), there’s some quick mouse action to cover up their wrongdoing.
for these people, i have found this privacy shroud to prevent the casual over-the-shoulder eavesdropping at what might be happening on the screen. the middle frame shows a travel-size “mobile shroud” for blackberry use on-the-go.
