    Yes. Every display had a 4:3 aspect ratio. While some machines employed two or even three monitors side by side to produce the impression of a 12:3 ratio, other monitors were turned on their side to make the screen longer than it was broad (kind of a 3:4 ratio).
    The actual gaming equipment, though, might not have had a 4:3 ratio. For instance, the ratio between Missile Command and Crystal Castles was 27:22. A 45:44 ratio was shared by Burger Time, Arkanoid, and Bubble Bubble.

Hardware and networking

The screen on which you are reading now is a piece of hardware and you could access this web content because of networking. Earlier the hardware designs were prepared to suffice the functional requirements of the device. On the contrary, in recent times, look and feel of the device is equally considered. With the advancements in the field of science like Nano-technology, more compact electronic and hardware equipment are developed. Networking is what binds different hardware devices in a linked system through which internal communication is made possible.
