Apple Job Posting Hints at Cloud-Based iWorkS

Considering Office 2010's cloud-based plans, it's no surprise that Apple's iWork division is courting developers to build "a scalable rich internet application." Let's face it: That means iWork in the cloud is (almost) definitely coming.

iWork already has a website that allows users to upload documents and comment on them, but no editing. As TechCrunch points out, what's interesting is that Apple is looking for someone to help go from "design to development," meaning there's probably a completely new product in the iWorks (...I'm so sorry about that, but I had to).

The posting also makes it sound like they're relatively early in the process (after all, they're looking for someone to help design, not just develop), but I'm sure Apple has something up their sleeve. This migration to the cloud is their big chance to finally catch up to Microsoft and Google's dominance in the world of office productivity suites. Guess we'll find out what Apple's cooking at some point. [TechCrunch]
