I'm not saying that Prezi is enough to save a bad presenter, but in my opinion it helps good presenters make WAY better presentations.
I think what a lot of the good CS programs do is teach a fair amount of theory, the basic concepts of programming languages - control structures, functional programming, etc., and then basically try to teach you how to *learn* a programming language. This is much more useful than just "here's VB.NET, we have no idea if it'll still be in use when you graduate."
I think it basically just got out of hand and now nobody uses the actual clock rate any more and the numbers don't mean anything.

AC probably only mentioned Adobe because of the prevalence of Flash... the end users certainly don't care that all the code Adobe writes is full of holes. If they did, they wouldn't keep using it. Obviously the risk is worth the reward of getting to watch youtube videos and play flash games...
I still don't understand why it isn't more popular...
