|Device / Program||Word 2010|
|Description||Microsoft Word 2010, and its predecessor, Microsoft Word 2007 brought a radical new appearance to the Microsoft Word product. Along with all other Microsoft Office 2007 applications, Word was overhauled, with the classic toolbar replaced with a ribbon approach which grouped certain items together. Although this required users to 'relearn' Microsoft Word, it has generally been well received. Word 2010 allows users to add images and diagrams to documents with far less clicks than earlier versions and provides the Styles, Formatting and Themes needed to produce professional looking files.|

|Technical Details||Microsoft Word 2010 uses DOCX as its default file format type. This file format is based on XML and provides business structure and meaning to documents allowing them to be interrogated by other applications more easily. The DOCX format is also more efficient at compression, providing the user with a smaller file size compared to the equivalent document created with a .DOC file extension.|

|Description||Files with a .pages file extension are word processing documents created by Apple's "Pages" application which forms part of Apple's iWork office suite, a set of applications which run on the Max OS X and iOS operating systems, and also includes Numbers (for spreadsheets) and Keynote (for presentations). Pages is a hybrid application, first released by Apple in February 2005, that allows users to perform both word processing and page layout tasks. A direct competitor to Microsoft Word (part of Microsoft's "Office" suite) it originally aimed to take a more simplistic approach to document creation and editing than Word, stripping out many of Word's more complex features.
Pages includes over 140 Apple-supplied templates to allow users to create common documents such as posters, newsletters, certificates, reports, brochures and formal letters - iWork '09 added support for a further 40 new templates. Pages can used to create custom documents which include charts, tables, images, text boxes, shapes, equations and graphs. It incoporates most of the key features found in modern word processors, including the selection of fonts based on WYSIWYG ("what you see is what you get"), the use of headers, footers, page-breaks, footnotes, bulleted lists and support for automatically generating a table of contents. Pages also comes with the standard spelling and grammar checkers. Pages provides tools for collaboration through change-tracking and advanced commenting and feedback features.
Pages integrates well with other Apple applications - Since iWork '08 a media browser has been incorporated which allows users to drag and drop photos, movies and music from iTunes, iPhoto, Aperture and iMovie, and it is possible to link charts produced in Numbers to .pages documents so that they update when that data is changed. The version 4.2 release of Pages (in July 2012), added support for the auto-syncing of documents through iCloud, whilst the version 5.0 release (in October 2013) added online collaboration across Macs and iOS devices. The most recent major version is 5.5 released in November 2014, which was part of Apple's iWork '14 release.
The key advances in Pages are summarised below:

|Technical Details||Official file format specifications for iWork Pages files are not published by Apple but there have been attempts by some developers to reverse engineer them.
A .pages file is actually a compressed ZIP file comprised of a number of other different files combined that together make up a .pages file.
The most recent version of Pages saves files with an "Index" directory containing Apple's proprietary IWA file format, a "Metadata" directory with .plist files, a "Data" directory with any image assets (e.g. backgrounds) and one or more jpg files for allowing quick previews.
Similar to Microsoft products, the .pages file type suffers from a lack of compatibility with other leading Word processor programs.
