Microsoft Product Name Word Reuse

In the Microsoft BI space, there are several words that seem to get reused quite a bit for product/technology names. SharePoint, Power Point, Performance Point, Power Pivot, Pivot Viewer. I've heard multiple people (myself included) use the wrong name when talking about a particular technology, due in part to the names being so similar. I decided to make a venn diagram to demonstrate the reuse of words, as well as shed a little light on what each technology does...mainly because I thought it would be funny....and also because I am a nerd. Enjoy.
