Thanks for the suggestion. I do actually get my work files more or less organised with indeed both Dropbox and Goodreader. The only pain is if you decide to do the "open in..." thing, you then start duplicating files all over the place which is far from ideal of course.
I was just suggesting that if a link or pointer could be created on the home screen (ie. Not duplicating) then we could organise with folders, the idea being that by clicking on the link, the original file itself would open within the given app, much like the web link can be created which opens safari to the according web page.
Anyway, just as IOS makes you think "out of the file system" box, I was trying to think out of the box but within the IOS way of thinking so to speak. The Ipad after all is more and more present in work environments, and I understand not just to consume media and browse the web. Helping manage professional needs can only help Apple in penetrating a very lucrative market and gain an even stronger market share. As it stands, the Ipad is inefficient for important professional needs: you can't expect managers to keep saving files from Dropbox to apps to Dropbox etc to keep things updated. That's my experience using the Ipad in a sales environment: clumsy when it could be very efficient. For personal use, I think it is a beautiful, useful and indeed addictive piece of hardware!
All the best.

I am new here so please bear with me ....
I have read this thread with interest and I have a clarification question.
First of all I donít have an iPad .. yet. Also, and this maybe heresy here, but I am a ms windows desktop user.
I understand the app and itís files concept rather than the Explorer file management approach. But how would I achieve the following :
I want to take an Excel file on my PC into Numbers, manipulate it and either then move the new file back to my PC for backup or print it. (My printer is not wifi)
I donít yet feel comfortable with using the internet to move files nor with the security of the ďcloudĒ concept to store files.
I would think that something like a 'shared cloud', much like a network file system accessible to multiple users, would address that issue. I know the guys at our ICT dept do something similar wiht sharepoint-based solutions.
