Incremental Blogger: "I understand why she uses Google. But why PowerPoint? Yeah, I'm sure the teacher told her too, but I think it's because of all the Office products it gives her the nicest looking output the fastest with the greatest amount of flexibility. Pictures, text, sound, movies, animations, sequences, etc are all fairly manageable to do in a short amount of time. Word is way too restrictive in layout. OneNote does presentation poorly (although outlining text is passable). And alternatives like Publisher are document oriented. She's not authoring an article to be printed. She's sharing a story--an interactive dialog. So how about Flash? Way too complicated. PowerPoint wins."

A great reminder that anyone currently developing products is probably totally out of touch with tomorrow's market.
