You see, iWork is like a box of chocolates


If you're in Singapore and are bored one afternoon, get yourself some thrills by going to the Apple website and attempt to download a trial copy of iWork 2008. Not only will each virtual disk image you download fail, but they'll all silently fail at different times and after a different amount of data has been transferred!

So many failed iWork downloads, so little time
So many failed iWork downloads, so little time

I should fire up Numbers in iWork and create a bar chart comparing the different sizes of each of these failed downloads. Oh, wait…
