2013.11 Tips: Dealing with New File Formats in IWork 2013

The lovely folx at Macworld have investigated (and now proceed to tell us about) things you should know about the new file formats in the 2013 release of Apple's iWork suite:
  • Pages (word processing and page layout = Microsoft Word)
  • Numbers (spreadsheet = Microsoft Excel)
  • Keynote (presentation / slideshow = Microsoft PowerPoint)

Bottom line: They may not be as compatible as you'd like with the old iWork 2009 suite, but they are now seamlessly integrated with iOS devices like the iPad and iPhone, and they are all completely synced with each other if you use iCloud storage. (Apple would really, really, really, really like you to use iCloud; users — even those who acknowledge the benefits — remain skeptical about surrendering control.)
