    Here's a new trademark from Apple. A search on Apple's website and on google didn't reveal anything. Is this new or an old product?

    All I can find is the program Xgrid with some info here

    "The most powerful data bound grid you will ever use, combining the ultimate in database support with the power and versatility of a spreadsheet.
    XGrid sets the standard, providing the combining a data grid with superb database access and the power of a spreadsheet application in a single component. XGrid offers Excel-compatibility offering the ultimate in developer control and flexibility while providing a familiar user interface.

    Performance is the key factor with XGrid, providing a complex set of functionality but with the streamline use of component technology, achieving the best of both worlds and unsurpassed performance matched by no other product on the market. "

    Perhaps Apple bought the company that produces this?

    The only thing I could find on the program at the Manufacturers (greentree) site is the press release
    otherwise it looks like maybe they stopped making it.
