The Simpsons ‘do’ Apple…

I love my Macbook, iPod(s), iPhone, Time Capsule and pretty much everything Apple. But despite (or perhaps, because of) that I do find this Simpsons parody very funny:

Death by Powerpoint

Death by Powerpoint

Powerpoint is, or at least can be, a wonderful tool. I use it all the time in my teaching. However, it seems to bring out the worst in people. I’m sure I’m not the only person to have physically cringed when those-who-should-know-better have thrown up a slide and then proceeded to just read from the screen. I can read, thank you very much.
