Apple office software seems likely | CNET News.com

Apple office software seems likely | CNET News.com: "A small Macintosh software developer has renamed an application it had been calling iWork, lending credence to rumors that Apple plans to introduce office software of the same name.
...
Enthusiast site ThinkSecret reported last week that a product from Apple called iWork would include an updated version of Apple's presentation software, Keynote, and a new word processing program, which the site says will be called Pages. The site predicted Apple would unveil the product at next week's Macworld Expo in San Francisco.
Such a program would be an interesting move for Apple, which has for years kept its office software ambitions limited, counting instead on Microsoft to produce a Mac version of Microsoft Office."

Still a rumor, but it'd be pretty weird, if it's true; I can't imagine Apple will continue investing in Safari now that Firefox is available, for example, nor would it make sense for Apple to build its own suite instead of bootstrapping with OpenOffice.org.
