Google Presentations?

This was interesting news I came about recently. Google has acquired Tonic Systems -who have a Java based presentation software I believe comparable to PowerPoint.

Google Docs and Spreadsheets as you may know has been around for a while now and has had a good deal of success - and rightly so. Google's online editing system allows people to collaborate on documents very easily without the expense of a shared server or other special program.

Now, the ability to collaborate on presentations as well looks like it may be coming down the pike very soon. I, for one, will be interested in seeing what it looks like!

My PowerPoint 2007 tip of the week is this:

If you are a little confused with the new "Ribbon" menu and trying to find the Help button in PowerPoint, you may get flustered. In previous versions, you simply clicked on the Help menu, right? Surprise, it's no longer there!

So, in PowerPoint 2007, press your F1 key or in the program itself...The Help button is a small "question mark" graphic in the top right corner of the program window -- just below the X that you use to close the program.

Have a great week!
