iWork '09 on the web?
The latest rumble has been about iWork ’09 [via MacRumors] being available online (vs. a CD/DVD local install).
This year I considered buying iWork ’08 since it would give me the flexibility of working with the Office apps from Microsoft without spending $300+. iWork ’08 cost is about $80. Much more reasonable.
Now, with some of the issues Apple had with MobileMe this year, online may be a tough sell (though Apple could also prove how much they have learned from this painful experience).
I also go back to the desire to have access to this data whenever and wherever I am (not just when I am online). If Apple figures out how to provide the same tools (online and off) and makes the cost more along the lines of $50-75 I am seriously going to look at this for 2009…
