If you've got a PowerPoint presentation you want to share with others, but are having problems doing so, then DVDShow for PowerPoint is a simple solution.
DVDShow for PowerPoint converts any PowerPoint presentation into a an MPEG movie file or lets you burn it to DVD so you can distribute it as a DVD and play it on a DVD player.
Using DVDShow for PowerPoint is quite simple. Just tell the program which presentation you want to convert, choose various options (such as the aspect ratio) you want to use, and it goes to work. First it previews the presentation for you, then it converts it and burns it. After that, you can distribute it to anyone you like.
The key question, though, is why would you want to convert a PowerPoint presentation to a movie file or DVD in the first place? If someone doesn't have the capability to view PowerPoint, that would be one reason.
It would have to be someone very special, though — such as your boss, your best customer, or your mum — because there's probably not a lot of need for DVDShow for PowerPoint, particularly given its $40 price tag.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
