Death by PowerPoint is such a common occurrence, although it’s the kind of death that involves neverending torment – neverending at least until the presentation comes to a close.

It was an easy decision for me: I wasn’t a heavy Office user anyway, preferring to keep most of my documents online, and using the application primarily to open client .doc files and the occasional […]
iWork, Apple’s answer to the Microsoft Office suite, also has an online component. iWork.com is Apple’s version of Google Docs, and it allows iWork users to share files with both Apple and PC users.
