Hello all,

I have a project that I am looking for some input into.  I have a client who has a google apps account, and uses google sites for an intranet.  We would like to set up a display PC, windows 8, with a touch screen, and have a few of those pages from the intranet display full screen, and have the users be able to swipe though the pages.  The pages would draw upon the live site, and change as those pages update.  I'm sure there is no magic wand approach to this, and am open to all suggestions.   Thanks so much!

sounds like you just need to run kiosk mode.  It's as easy as iexplore -k "yoursite.com"

Hi breakwatertech
Digital signage possibly, have you heard of this?
Digital signage uses your current monitor with or without a proprietary media player
You might need a digital platform

There is quite a large coverage on DS
as per your wishes>
1-windows 8, with a touch screen,
2-pages from the intranet display full screen, and have the users be able to swipe through the pages.
3- The pages would draw upon the live site, and change as those pages update.

Hi Gary, no disrespect to tagit  nor take anything away from his good answer
but I suggest just delete it as our comments cannot provide a definite solution as the asker never came back therefore anyone looking up solutions will see this question and wonder.
Personally EE should not be about points but provide solutions ;)
But of course it is up to tagit or you.
cheers
