More computer monitors means more productivity. [Note: "More" is highly subjective and basically results in 15 minutes per day.]

How many monitors do you have at home of at work?

At work I have 3, technically.
- Laptop
- Monitor hooked to laptop
- iPhone

I mention my iPhone because I use it as a notification device for news and information that many dedicate a single monitor to. Seriously, it buzzes all day long and is ridiculously annoying, which I’m sure reverses any productivity it might otherwise provide.

Also, I should note that when the iPad 3 (or whatever the heck they’ll call it… “iPad HD”??) is released next month I’m slapping one of these suckers to my monitor for a more improved viewing experience.

Gizmodo wrote a short piece on a NYT article. The learnings?

Anderson has calculated that it can save about 10 seconds for every five minutes of work if you have a dual-monitor set-up. Over the course of an eight hour day, that’s a saving of, oooh, 15 minutes.
