Yeah, I'd recommend iwork.com (I suspect that's what the previous poster mean).

If your wanting to send a PDF or a word document using iWork.com, this won't work. You can only send project files to iWork from the iPad. iWork.com is a great way to shear Pages project files to people who don't have Pages install onto their computer. The Pages app basically runs in the cloud. Within setup option you will still need to email the iWork link to yourself. Setting up iWork take more time compared to emailing it to yourself.
Emailing the document is the best way to send it to yourself.

Pages will let you:
- Save your document to the "iTunes folder," which allows you to transfer the file to your computer when you sync Pages using iTunes.
- iWork.com. iWork.com is Apple's iWork (Pages, Keynote, Numbers) cloud service. When you upload a Pages document, iWork.com will store the file in .doc, .pages, and .pdf formats. This allows you (or anyone to whom you send the link) to download the file from any device/computer in any of those three formats.
- iDisk, Apple's online storage service bundled with Apple's MobileMe service.
- Emailing the document to yourself.
- Save as .doc, .pages, or .pdf, and open in another app on your iPad2.
Many users don't use any of these cloud services, don't want to send emails to themselves, and don't want to physically sync with iTunes. I use iDisk and Google Docs for storage, and you might also be aware of other services like box.net, dropbox, evernote, etc.
I use several alternatives for saving my documents online. The three I use are DocsToGo, PrintCentral, and GoodReader. All three of these programs allow you download and upload files to all of the services above (except perhaps Evernote). These programs also have email functionality - you can send selected files (not just your project file) as email attachments. Additionally, DocsToGo contains word processor and spreadsheet functionality, and GoodReader allows you to save your .pages or .doc as a PDF and annotate it. GoodReader has the best file management I've seen for the iPad.
I use Pages for creation/document editing. Then, I open the .doc or .pdf in one of these programs if I want to save the file to Google Docs, box.net, etc.
I'm sure there are other alternatives, but this has been my experience.

Get a dropbox and keep all your working life in it, then your life will be happier.
- Sign up at Dropbox.com and set up on your computers.
- Sign up at DropDAV.com
- Set up iWork to use DropDAV
Now you can save your files in any form you wish, and they will magically be on every machine you own within seconds.
