Developing for the iPhone

The last time I used Objective-C, it wasn't 2.0. As such, I'm needing to brush up quite a bit on my skills. I'm not used to having the compiler generate my properties for me, or the dot syntax etc.

I'm also not a big fan of mixing garbage collection with no garbage collection, I feel that's a recipe for disaster, however I'm going to cautiously proceed anyway.

I will say that the Xcode tools have shown immense improvement since the last release. I wasn't a fan of them at all, and I was surprised that my muscle memory for emacs keybindings isn't wasted completely in the Xcode editor.

If I can keep my interest level high in this area, I may just splurge for that 99 dollar license to deploy applications.
