This past Friday, I announced ZDNet's Deputy Tester of the Week program. Basically, there are more products to test than we have time to test. So, with the permission of the vendors that send products to us, we're going to be passing them along to ZDNet's audience for keeps. For more information on how the program works, check out last week's aforelinked blog and then be sure to read the official rules and regulations. As promised, this week, we're giving away three copies of the product that's kicking our program off. That product is Balesio GmbH's PPTMinimizer 3.0.
It's normally 30 bucks and it's not a crippled version.I have three copies here ready to send to the three lucky ZDNet readers who can tell us why they think they're the most qualified to receive them. More on that in a second. I asked a company spokesperson to give ZDNet's readers the pitch and to hear what she had to say about this software whose sole purpose in life is to compress PowerPoint files (version 3.0 supports PPTX, the PowerPoint format in Microsoft Office 2007). To find out what she said, you need to watch the video above. Then, once you're done watching the video, using the ZDNet TalkBack facility on this blog entry, make your best pitch as to why I should send one of the three copies I have here in my office to you.
Keep in mind we're looking for people who are can tell us why they're the most qualified to test the product in their real world environments. And then, once you receive the product, I'd love to hear back from you regarding your findings. Even if I don't, you get to keep the product. So, good luck and let the TalkBacks begin!
