    I have to say I work there and there are tons of idiots that type out the specs on all the cards. They dont seem to even have middle school level proofreading skills. Dimensions of products are typed out wrong, words are misspelled etc...

    :p

    Wow, this coming from BestBuy? I'm so surprised... :rolleyes:

    On the topic though, I wonder if we will see iWork 09 in the fall as well did with iWork 08 or if instead Jobs will wait until MWSF (or sometime actually in 2009) for the release of the new suite.

    True, there's nothing saying there will even be an iWork 09 in the first place. Apple has been so busy focusing on MobileMe, iPhone 2.0, AppStore, not to mention having teams working on 10.6 that there are only so many resources to go around. I'd say we won't see anything until at least MWSF, and if we don't see an update then I won't be surprised either.

    Because Apple is just like Microsoft, right? It will probably more like every 18-24 months. iWork was on a 12 month version schedule until '08.

    Yeah so when you buy both, they don't don't have to give you the discount. That's the catch!

    If you all look at the "ad" you will see that the SKU for iWork '08 is (8504727) and the SKU on the "ad" is (8940694) hummmmmmm and the family pack is different too!
