Power Presenter

This application is for Presentation. If you save the powerpoint as PDF file, this app will help you do the presentation on projector. If you can upload your file to a web site, it also can present that website for you. It automatically detects the projector and send the signal to the projector when connecting with the VGA cable. It actually mirror the screen to the projector using software. Therefore, you can not only see the presentation on the iPad screen but also on the projector. No need to turn your head back all the time as in Keynote. You can now also draw, highlight text on the slides and send your drawing to email. It also contains a blackboard and web content presenter so you can write your formula on a whiteboard or blackboard, show video clips using a single app. It is great tool for education.

Google Plus

Google Plus is another social network where you post status updates and share photos, just like Facebook — or is it? Actually, Google's latest project combines multiple services that make it more flexible and customizable than its competitors; for example, users can control exactly how their information is shared with features like "Circles," which separate contacts into distinct groups like friends, family and co-workers.

"Hangouts" in Google Plus

Hangouts is a multi-Video chat feature of Google Plus. Google Plus is the first social network site that implemented one-to-many (Up to 10 friends) video chat for Google+ users. People may wonder about How do people will interact and have fun with Google+ Hangouts.

Who can enter a hangout on Google+
Hangouts are created by one person, but everyone in the hangout shares the ability to invite others.

Each hangout has a specific URL. That URL can be shared as a link to invite others. However, only Google+ users are able to join. Be thoughtful when inviting as you can’t kick anyone out of a hangout. If you feel uncomfortable in a hangout you can leave at any time.

Here is an example of a Hangout with Ray, Emily and Carrie:
