MacRumors have picked up on a number of non-posted images from Apple.com, showing Apple having a $999 display. In the pics, the display has a new part number (which is in the URL), and a newer background to match the default wallpaper of Mac OS X Lion which is being released next week. What makes this interesting is the below pic which shows two of the newer displays, with one plugged into the other.
Maybe Apple are allowing mirrored or extended displays through USB, but most likely this is Thunderbolt-powered and it's down with the latest-generation iMacs which share many design similarities with the LED cinema display. If Apple wants to push Thunderbolt, this would definitely be the way to go about it. On something like a MacBook Pro, using the Thunderbolt port just to power a monitor would use up the port, but daisy-chaining them like this would allow a user to use the Thunderbolt I/O on the MBP, then daisy-chain something directly into the Cinema Display.
Thunderbolt is capable of daisy chaining up to seven Thunderbolt-equipped devices together, whilst retaining full speed across ever single one of them, this is thanks to the existing DisplayPort and PCI-Express data protocols to open up what you can do with a single port into multiple uses and at high speeds.

With a vision toward what is inevitably the future in 3D viewing, LG has managed to bring it closer to reality here and now with the launch of its new D2000 panel today.
The inevitable future for 3D? Glasses-free of course, and that is what the D2000 is all about. This 20-inch monitor boasts glasses-free parallax barrier 3D technology in conjunction with the world's first eye-tracking feature that maintains an optimal 3D image from multiple viewing angles.
Unlike other existing glasses-free 3D technologies, LG's D2000 allows much more freedom in terms of not having to be positioned within a tightly restricted angle and distance for the effect to work properly.

Eizo have unveiled their latest beast of a monitor, the 36-inch DuraVision FHD3601. The FHD3601 spots a native resolution of, wait for it, 4096x2160. The monitor is LED-backlit, features a 10-bit panel supporting 1074.74 million colors, 700cd/m2 brightness and a contrast ratio of 1000:1. The viewing angle is 176 degrees which suggests that Eizo are using a Sharp ASV panel.
The DuraVision FHD3601 includes all the advanced technology Eizo has been developing for the past few years, inclusive of their human presence sensor and the Digital Uniformity Corrector (DUE) that ensures perfect light homogeneity. Eizo plan to launch this puppy in Japan on September 7, 2011 at a price of 2.88 million Yen, or approx US$36,000. Eizo hope the FHD3601 appeals to example flight control centers, oh and me.
VESA have popped their heads up quickly to announce an update to the DisplayPort 1.2 standard. The updates include video connections that can be stretched up to 100 feet - five times that of what is out now and will use thinner gauge wire for more flexible cords. The one backlash is the cables are directional, but the new logo should help the confusion over which end goes where.
For those of you with DisplayPort hardware, and for those who over time will end up going DisplayPort, this is good news. Longer cables mean more options!
