According to good-old Steve Jobs, speaking at Apple's summer press conference, the company's productivity powerhouse iWork '08 is on the way, and it will feature a ton of enhancements for Keynote and Pages, plus it introduces a new app to the mix: Numbers. The new component will apparently be giving Excel a run for its money, with a slew of new data-handling functions and spreadsheet-ing capabilities. Jobs calls the new edition -- which imports / exports in Excel format -- a "spreadsheet for the rest of us," and touts all sorts of easy to access features like intelligent tables, readable formulas, the use of multiple formats on single page, and the ability to make what Jobsy calls "gorgeous looking spreadsheets very quickly." Additionally, Keynote and Pages have received some updating, with new text effects and transitions for Apple's Power Point competitor, as well as "Smart Builds," new themes, and easier to access animation tools. Pages gets re-upped with a contextual format bar, built-in change tracking, further compatibility with Word, and 140 Apple-designed templates for documents. The whole shebang is available right now from Apple for $79 (or $99 for the family pack).
