OK, this is one of those strange things in life that encounters you in a foreign country. Back in May, I was on vacation in Bangkok and ended up in a book store full of Thai computer books. My curiosity led me to find books on PowerPoint and the most prominently displayed book in this section had Steve Jobs on the cover! At that time, Steve Jobs had already been dead for 7 months, and that

iPad Presenting 04: Add an Apple TV

If you are serious about iPad presenting, then you may have already realized that it makes no sense to attach your iPad to a TV or projector with a cable.
