So who needs a spreadsheet module in iWork if you have this, eh?

I like the ability to easily share spreadsheets with people I designate.

...but we already have a handful of tin foil hat naysayers

Around here you need more than a tin foil hat, more like a Titanium or Aluminum foil hat (:-)). Oh yeah, bring your drill press so nobody can steal your info.

Hey Zoidy, I saw this too on Digg. I was going to start a thread but didn't know quite what to say about it, in fact I still don't. I like the idea of being able to share it though. I work on projects where budgets get passed around all the time and it's difficult to tell which is the most up to date version. I wonder if you'd be able to move backwards with this to an older budget?

This will be a boon to most domestic users who want to create a small spreadsheet and share it with others. However...
The corporate world will immediately ban it because it is:
1- Insecure
2- Not auditable
3- Not Microsoft Excel

#1 is the big issue for me- I don't see me creating work spreadsheets using this. However, lists of non confidential data for cub scouts (like advancement lists and such), hey, I'm all over it !!!

I hope they make it so you can import other XLS files

edit---looks like you can import .xls and .csv
use the open command--and it navigates your finder to look for the file--COOL!

It can't be any more unsecure than Excel. There are more macro viruses out there than you an shake a stick at. Not to mention, the final could be over HTTPS.
