Peer Evaluation Jake (evaluated by Adam) Presentation on Apple March 22, 2010 Speech Design: I think Jake chose an excellent topic in selecting Apple as a subject to talk about; however his planning could have been more well prepared.

I also like how his PowerPoint was simple and to the point. If I was doing my speech on apple however, I would have tried to highlight some of their premier products a little bit more effectively and discussed what separates these products from that of the rest of the world.
