The sub-head for this article caught my attention:

The “No PowerPoint” part is what caught my attention. What if I choose to use the Open Office presentation software, Flash, or Mac’s Keynote – would I be allowed to present?

When a product takes over its category it becomes the default name for the category (eg. Scotch Tape, any type of clear tape, or Hot Wheels, any small toy car). And in our case “PowerPoint” has become a default that means any presentation that uses slides/visuals.

Just a thought of the day post.
