Google Tinkering With Free Presentation Software (Yawn)

Hey, I don't say "yawn" very often. But this is a special occasion.

Google appears to be preparing to enter the free online presentation software game. Based on the hints and the industry standard, the offering is unlikely to contain any of the advanced features PowerPoint offers. I always love rooting for underdogs, but I am seriously tired of text-only slideware being sold as the next PowerPoint killer. It's all about the animations, folks. To slightly modify a quote from Homer Simpson, in the world of presentation software, animation effects are the cause of, and the solution to, all our problems. [Link]
