I hate saying this... but PowerPoint.

Excel takes some knowledge, but anyone can make a PowerPoint. It’s like MS Paint for the office.

I worked somewhere that didn’t let you use rich text in email. Every email was just a PowerPoint with what they wanted to do in the email but could not.

Could not send a file or a image? Embed it into the PowerPoint to send... no joke.

Have a point to make, make 52 slides to say “No”.

So much of business Is just PowerPoints. Hell, “The Patriot Act” show in Netflix is just someone talking over a PowerPoint on a stage. Slightly more flashy than a TED talk.

Every time I see a Powerpoint presentation, I die a little. Mind you, I can't really blame the tool for people sucking at preparing presentations.
