PowerPoint to iPhone and iPod? Yup.

"Getting presentations from PowerPoint 2008 for Mac to your iPod or iPhone is easy. PowerPoint exports your presentation as a series of pictures directly to iPhoto, or saves those same slide images as pictures to your Pictures folder. From there, sync pictures to your iPod or iPhone through iTunes as usual, then use the built-in Photos or slide show program on your iPod or iPhone to show your presentation. No sweat!

“Presentations look great on the big wide screens of iPhone and iPod Touch, but they look even better on a big screen TV or projected. Plug your iPod into a television or projector using the Apple Component AV or Composite AV cable and leave your laptop in the case.”

Thanksgiving templates and creating montages in PowerPoint 2003

Happy November all!

You can find 35 Thanksgiving related templates here at Microsoft this month... from PowerPoint backgrounds to menu placecards you can print out from Word.

In addition, for some of you who love to play around with the graphics in PowerPoint, you can find a tutorial here by Geetesh Bajaj - a Microsoft MVP and owner of the Indezine site - about how to create Images with gradients for a montage look and feel. It's fascinating and useful to know - something new and cool to add to your skillset!

Football season is over here in Kentucky and fall is in full force. I drove back home on the AA Highway yesterday and was simply amazed at the beauty of all the colors in the mountains and hills - oranges, reds, yellows, greens and pinks! Wow. Nature is bountiful and beautiful - and I am thankful.

Have a wonderful and warm Thanksgiving!
