PowerPoint Gets Back to Roots

by P. J. Connolly
The latest update to PowerPoint for the Mac offers a wide array of sharing options, including SharePoint and SkyDrive, while providing presentation creators with a broad canvas with which to work. PowerPoint 2011 includes new organization features, media browsing options and controls for embedded video that enhance an already powerful tool for creating rich presentations. The PowerPoint Web App and new broadcasting tools allow one to show a presentation online as well as in-person, without compromising the quality of the slideshow. Image editing has seen a marked expansion of scope, and image compression options are available to help make the best use of available bandwidth while maintaining fidelity to one's creative vision.
P. J. Connolly began writing for IT publications in 1997 and has a lengthy track record in both news and reviews. Since then, he's built two test labs from scratch and earned a reputation as the nicest skeptic you'll ever meet. Before taking up journalism, P. J. was an IT manager and consultant in San Francisco with a knack for networking the Apple Macintosh, and his love for technology is exceeded only by his contempt for the flavor of the month. Speaking of which, you can follow P. J. on Twitter at pjc415, or drop him an email at pjc@eweek.com.
