Why does it say that Dropbox requires iOS 3.1 or later, when in fact it currently requires iOS 5.0 or later?

I found a much better, free alternative which works in Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Apple does offer to reduce file size using Preview, if you save the document as a new file and choose Quartz filter > Reduce file size.

Here's the link to Apple's support document:

This is my new favourite frontend for Dosbox. It is definitely worth installing since it makes the installation of old games and applications really simple. It took only seconds to get up and running.

Why update a game that's solely made for PPC? There are no mentions of bug fixes or anything else.

(Note: I am only going to review Pages 09. iWork includes Numbers and Keynote as well).

If you have the need for a word processor to open, print and save text-only documents, you will be fine with free alternatives from other developers: OpenOffice, Bean, TextEdit (Mac OS X built-in) or any other great word processor application.
On the other hand, if you're looking for an easy-to-use and visually pleasing and productive word processor you do not need to look any further. Pages simplifies formatting of text and still adds several features to make the document look more appealing to the eye. It's compatible with several text document formats, even though you might need a complementary word processor to support them all.

Pages started out as a page layout application. You can do beautiful page layout with it, because the application comes bundled with ready-to-use templates. They make it easy for just about anyone to accomplish nice looking page layouts. Adding photos to your page layout document is easy, especially if you're using a template since they are built for drag and drop in mind.
There are however some things Apple need to work on in terms of features to make their suite better:

- Print layout view (something which Microsoft Word users take for granted)
- Support for more document formats, even the slight obscure ones
- Add the capability to make your own, proper layout for a book or magazine. Integrate it with iPhoto in iLife.

All in all, while Pages 09 accomplishes most things that people want to do with their layout and word processing, it still isn't the best choice for every user. iWork 09 is a capable page layout application and word processor for the private household, but advanced office users and people who are paid to work with layout full-time need to look for Microsoft and Adobe products respectively.
