(Editor's note: iCloud does not work as described. Documents saved in an iCloud-compatible application autoatically sync with all devices tied to the same account that have the same application, assuming the user enabled iCloud document syncing on each (it's not on by default). On iOS, the documents are available in the respective application's file list, and on Mac OS X they remain in whatever folder they were stored in. Furthermore, the iWork.com website referenced is a beta service that Apple is discontinuing on July 31. It predates iCloud and was intended to work like Dropbox and Box.net, where users drag or send files to a cloud-based repository.)
Oh, and, as Steve Jobs might have said, here's one more thing. Let's say you want to save your Pages document with a different name in iCloud so as not to confuse it from one on your Mac. As with every other productivity suite in memory, including Apple's, the process is: Go to the menu bar, click File, and, wait, there's no longer a Save As function. It was removed for the Lion version of Apple's iWork suite. Now, if you want to change a version of the document, you need to duplicate it and save it with a new name. Why? Who knows? But I'm sure the folks at Apple's Genius Bar will tell us it's good for us.
