The article suggests not using PowerPoint. I don't think this is the same as "don't ever use PowerPoint." The aim is to get you to think about what *really* needs to be in your presentation, and if there may be a better (i.e., more personal) way to transfer that info.
Lots of people complain about the presenter reading slides to the audience. How else do you know how long to give the audience to read themselves? Do you know they even are reading it? Slow readers will feel the need to rush, and fast readers sit through an awkward silence. The article suggests fixing this by delivering that info another way. It can be a memo emailed prior, or a live discussion instead, or summarized data points that you use as a cue card and expand upon by talking.
Relax. Nowhere does she say "uninstall the thing and never look back." There are shades of gray here.
