I think that ironically PowerPoint suffers from the same problem as modern cars: Features.

There are so many fancy features, buttons, bells and whistles that it is easy to get distracted from the main objective:
Getting from A to B car / delivering a clear and simple presentation.

Of course you can teach people how to use all the layout features in PowerPoint. Sure you can teach people how to use every single button in a modern car’s dashboard.
But why not build a product that avoids driver distraction in the first place?

It’s the driver’s fault if he wrecks his car trying to figure out how to operate his GPS, but still there is a design problem in the product. This cannot be compensated with the best driver’s training in the world.
