Matt Eventoff

Review: PowerPoint 2010 Bible

PowerPoint Tips

I received a free copy of PowerPoint 2010 Bible by Faithe Wempen. PowerPoint 2010 Bible is indeed very complete. It’s published by Wiley and is almost 800 pages. You think that’s a lot? I write the AutoCAD & AutoCAD LT Bible , and it’s almost 1300 pages! The point is, Wiley’s Bible series is meant to be very complete and the books are long. Generally, they’re reference books, not tutorials.

Where in the World is Akio Toyoda?

Matt Eventoff

One headline that a company in crisis could certainly live without is “ Inside Toyota, Executives Trade Blame Over Debacle “ — this morning’s headline in the Wall Street Journal. This comes on the heels of a controversy surrounding the Lexus GX460 — suspension of the sale of the vehicle following Consumer Reports issuing a rare “Do Not Buy&# warning. While the news doesn’t get better for Toyota, their handling of the Lexus crisis did.

I led off with a minute of speaking about myself, by demonstrating what they would be doing and answering this question. What is your message as a speaker?"

I’m undecided about who I’ll root for in this year’s match up, although that’s hard to admit in public around here. Giants fever has hit every corner of Northern California and it’s hard to quell.
