Another design flaw

I was on the Northeast Line (NEL) on my way to a friend's place when attention was drawn to the screen in the cabin. The first thing I noticed was that it was blocked. I decided that I would take a shot of the screen seated and standing so that it not biased.

The following is taken seated.

Design flaw

Then this is taken standing.

Design Flaw

While it isn't as stupid and thoughtless as the auto flush somewhere in a 600-million-dollar-building, I think it is something the designers should beat themselves over, well, at least for a day. Imagine an advertisement which uses that top part of the screen for messaging, almost everyone would not see it.
