Oh wow! It seems I'm a bit out of touch
I didn't realise the price had come down so much

That is a special "home and student" edition, and yes that is not a bad deal. I know the older versions that were I think were called Professional with Outlook and all were much more.

Interesting article on Appleinsider about a cloud version of iWork for iPad.

http://appleinsider.com.feedsportal....ce/story01.htm

I can't imagine web-based access to desktop iWork apps would be half as elegant as the native iPad apps, but if it means the desktop suite can resume development unshackled from the need for parity with the iPad suite, then I'm happy.

Unless I missed something. Not a peep about an iWork update for desktop users today.

How long will the product page on the Apple website remain stagnant as long as it says iWork 09?
