Wow, nothing says "buy this program" like technology that can get you out of a hot situation and smash your rivals to pieces before the board of directors!

It's truly bewildering that with all the potential applications of this technology that spring immediately to mind, the most compelling use they could think of was delivering corporate slideshows.

@ Chris. Sun Micro-systems of course would have to show how to create corporate slide shows with the emerging technology, to appeal to a broader economic market.It is still done today, with the unlimited possibility of our computers today, they are currently marketed as web surfing machines.
