If you find yourself working in crowded spaces like coffee shops, it can be tough to keep prying eyes from glancing at your screen. To combat that sort of snooping, HP is outfitting its stable of notebook PCs with privacy screens from 3M. The duo is working on new displays that integrate the security feature for "an on-demand electronic privacy solution." While details are scarce for now, it sounds like the screens in HP's future laptops will allow the feature to be turned off when you're working from the comforts of your home or office. Unfortunately, you'll have to wait a bit to get your hands on a machine that houses the tech, as the first products are expected to arrive in mid-2016.
