The area on a monitor or any other computer device (including handhelds, PDAs, laptops, cell phones, pagers, etc.) that you look at, it is the area which displays text and graphical information (similar to a television screen). Acronyms and smileys are used to convey information and emotion as "screens" get smaller and smaller. You may hear someone say "he spends all of his time in front of that darn screen."
