    Parallels is $79.99 directly from the company. If you do not need to use Mac OS and Windows simultaneously, just use Apple's Boot Camp.

    Parralels is Similar to VmWare

    IMO I preffer VmWare, has turned out to be much less buggy for me

    I've read these books:
    Apress Beginning iPhone Development: Exploring the iPhone SDK
    O'reilly Head First iPhone Development

    Both are pretty good introductions.

    Also, the lynda.com teaching videos for iOS development are good.

    I'm still terrible at it though. I consider myself a fairly decent developer (C, Java, C#, PHP mainly), but for some reason I just can't "get" objective-c and iphone dev (yet). I'm still going to stick with it though!

    As already suggested throw an eye on the Stanford's lectures in iTunes (i recommend first to go for the Fall 2010 semester). They cover only the basics though - for a good app you'd need to read several times the Quartz 2D and OpenGL development docs.

    P.S. Is it only me that believes that there's nothing smart in an app/phone, that waits for the user to open it and click N times for some info? I mean a smartphone should be able to present the specific data within one click max (it should have collected and manipulated the data before the user thought of it)... or even analize the current location, calendar's upcoming events and...the cinema/theater nearby... for instance

    Cheers, I'll give them a try, and the other video tutorials mentioned earlier.

    I think my problem is getting my brain to accept a different way if coding (I've coded apps for winmob before, and played about with the android sdk)!
    I think what's confusing me at the moment is the theory behind things like delegation, first responders and files owner!

    @StarMonkee:
    You can always do C++ instead of objective-c. I don't really know the difference but I know its possible to develop in C++.

    Also, I'm Using VMWare and Mac OS X Snow Leopard, It's working kinda smooth. When I close almost everything in windows 7 and give almost every resource available to the Virtual Machine, It almost feels like a real mac!

    first of all Building a Hackintosh is not illegal if you have a REAL copy of Mac OS X Snow Leopard. If you get a Torrent off of the internet then thats pirating software and thats illegal.
