Apple unveils new iMacs, updated apps | Tech news blog - CNET News.com

Okay, I admit the new iMacs look great, and I'd love to have one to explore. 

I still find it weird, however, to see Apple also introducing a spreadsheet application; strange days indeed...

But Jobs then plunged into the new version of iWork, Apple's productivity suite. Keynote, the presentation application, comes with several new themes and better support for manipulating photos to serve as background for a slide. Pages, the word processing application, also received updated templates.

But the big part of the new iWork suite is a spreadsheet application called Numbers. Numbers is designed to work with Keynote and Pages, allowing people to drop in pictures, graphs and photos alongside spreadsheet tables. You can also import and export with Microsoft's Excel spreadsheet.

iWork '08 costs $79 and is available today.
