Found on the top edge of a Phillips Brilliance LCD monitor. The arrow is pointing toward the front/screen side of the LCD. My coworkers and I are trying to figure out just what exactly the symbol means, and why it’s there…

I gave the Ars Hive Mind a crack at figuring it out, too. Entertaining results so far. :-)

    Well on a camera they would mean “Macro or Portait” but on a monitor? I have no bloody clue.

    Ok, having seen the monitor in question, giving it some thought, and reading other posts for insight I have deduced that this monitor is manufactured by VW for Philips. Thus, in keeping with the VW bug them the arrow is actually a flowerpot where you put your flower or pot. The two people hugging is indicitive of the euphoria that commonly occurs after exchanging flowers or pot.
