As is customary when Apple prepare to toss some fresh new goodies our way, the Apple Store has been kaput since about 10:00am EST. Last minute rumors continue to swirl but none of the big ones can be confirmed at this point – we’ll just have to wait a bit longer for Apple’s Macworld keynote, which kicks off at 9:00am PST / 12:00pm EST, to see exactly what Apple has in store. There is one safe bet however, likely inadvertantly revealed a bit early. iWork, Apple’s productiviy suite, will be updated to iWork ’09. It remains to be seen whether or not Apple will announce a Web-based tie in but as you can see in the screen clip above, iWork ’09 made a brief appearance on Apple’s download page before a quick correction reverted the entry back to iWork ’08. No information about the update was found anywhere else on the site. With Apple’s keynote kicking off in just under a half hour, we’re now on the home stretch. As always, keep it here for breaking news covering all of Apple’s Macworld announcements – you never know, Apple might still have a trick or two up its sleeve.

Thanks, Mel!
