iWork-09RUMOUR MILL : 9to5Mac (via MacRumors) is reporting that Apple might be making the latest version of its office suite, iWork ‘09, online to the Cloud. The site also speculates that future versions of the suite will be basically browser-based applications; however, this does not mean that it will ditch the native versions.

The new rumour puts the web applications similar to the extensive list of applications on MobileMe, which features Mail, Address Book and a place to store files on the “cloud”. This also puts it in competition with Microsoft’s plan to release Office 14 as a suite of web applications, but not ditching the native applications; and also puts it in competition with Zoho and Google.
