Google Chief Executive Eric Schmidt said Tuesday Google is set to introduce software for creating meeting presentations online, offering a twist on Microsoft's popular PowerPoint tool.
Google is adding presentation software as a new feature to Google Docs, a collection of Web-based product tools such as word-processing, spreadsheets, e-mail and home page publishing that offers an alternative to Microsoft Office, Schmidt said.
But the leader of the world's Web search leader, which expanded last year to offer a new category of online software for use by consumers and businesses, played down the direct challenge to Microsoft when asked whether the move was meant to compete with PowerPoint.

On a side note I was thinking about throwing an app like this together for my talk at PubCon last November as an example of how to create a useful Web App. Just thought it would be funny to give a presentation about web presentation software using the presentation software I wrote. Then realized it might take a little longer than a couple days ;)

Just like that huh!? I'm expecting GREAT things from you young man ;)
I think the idea sounds extremely powerful. I wonder if there will be a way to see the presentation offline (put it onto a usb stick)? I can just see 50 presenters at the next Pubcon grappling with a WiFi connection...
Imagine you giving presentation and your competitors ads coming up in side offering half the price , just kidding , i know no professional would use this while giving the customer presentation
Good useful tool , thanks Google for the same
