Pertelian X2040 V4 USB LCD Portable Display
November 16, 2006

One of the great features of the Internet is the availability of huge amounts of information. Years ago, if you wanted to know something you had to read it in the paper or research it at the local library. Both of these methods of receiving information worked well, but had limitations. The information could not be delivered to you instanteously, or allow you to monitor things in real time. The Internet has changed that and today almost anything you want to know about can be found; from message boards, RSS news feeds, stock information, weather, and even Ebay auctions.

Having all the information you need is great, but it still means you need to stop what you are doing to check for updates. Not any more! The Pertelian X2040 is an innovative USB external device that brings the information you want to a small LCD screen. With the Pertelian you can monitor RSS new feeds, message boards, Ebay auctions, system statistics, and many other things. It includes over thirteen tools to allow you to multitask without leaving the applications or game you are working on.

ForeSight Systems LLC was formed by a couple of graduates from the University of California in December 2004, after discussing the limitations of PC gaming. They began developing a product to manage music tracks while gaming, and during a redesign phase they developed the Pertelian X2040 to have a larger LCD and to include new functions.
