    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 http://www.hallogram.com/xgrid/

    "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 http://www.green-tree.com/homelinks.asp?page=pressroom
    otherwise it looks like maybe they stopped making it.
