Google rolls out rival to PowerPoint
In a challenge to Microsoft, business presentation tool will be included in search engine giant's free software bundle.
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (AP) -- Google Inc. has expanded its online suite of office software to include a business presentation tool similar to Microsoft Corp.'s popular PowerPoint, adding the latest twist in a high-stakes rivalry.
The new program will be included in Google's free software bundle, called "Docs," which users must be online to employ. And the company will sell a souped-up version to businesses, universities and government agencies for $50 a year per user.
As PowerPoint does, Google's presentation software enables users to create a series of slides with a mixture of text and graphics on each. PowerPoint is widely used in business meetings.
Google's software suite already includes word processing, spreadsheet and calendar management programs. Microsoft (Charts, Fortune 500) has been reaping huge profits from similar applications for years.
Unlike Google's applications, Microsoft's programs are usually installed directly on the hard drives of computers.
Google executives have consistently depicted the company's software applications as counterparts to Microsoft's product.

TOKYO — Sony Corp on Thursday unveiled its new alpha-700 DSLR camera which will go on sale Nov 16. The 12.2-megapixel camera is equipped with a newly developed 12.24-megapixel CMOS sensor, called Exmor, that enables users to capture sharp images at around five frames per second. Noise is significantly reduced and the improved processor engine BIONZ allows for high quality images.
The camera only weighs 690 grams, which is the lightest camera among similar models on the market. HDMI output allows users to enjoy the images on HD TV. When connected to Sony's new BRAVIA television set, also coming this fall, it provides even more detailed and clearer images shown in BRAVIA premium photo mode that a regular HD TV cannot recreate.
