Reminder: Dies Today

That's today!

Just a reminder, friends: if you’ve ever used Apple’s beta to share and collaborate on documents in the cloud, you need to download them to your computer today… otherwise, at the end of the day, Apple will press a big red button and your precious Pages, Keynote and Numbers documents will be ripped apart into a trillion trillion atoms and slowly dispersed throughout the universe.

First launched in 2009 as a service to let iWork users collaborate, edit and download documents online, is being killed off having never left beta in favor of Apple’s newer and more full-featured cloud initiative, iCloud.


Could Apple Release iWork ’12 Alongside OS X Mountain Lion On July 25th?


Apple’s iWork suite hasn’t been updated since January 2009. To put that in perspective, when the last major version of iWork came out, OS X Leopard was still the most recent version of Apple’s operating system, and Snow Leopard was still eight months away from being announced: OS X Lion and Mountain Lion weren’t even glimmers on the horizon then. The most current iPhone was the iPhone 3G, and the iPad was still a year from being released.

It’s obvious, then, that the iWork suite is way past due for an update. It’s possible, though, that we could see iWork ’12 hit as soon as the end of July, dropping alongside OS X Mountain Lion.

Since then, iCloud has been introduced to let you keep your documents wirelessly synced across devices, and there is no need for anymore.
