    Think I'll stick with the iBook selection, some serious storage needed for the iTunes version lol

    Or maybe I'm just a hog and want to download everything that is free
    The University Pod casts are free.

    I see two courses for iPhone app development, I assume those are what you mean. However, I'm a pretty much die-hard PC/Windows guy (apart from my new baby) and do not have an OS X system that I can develop in. From my preliminary investigation it appears that I'd have to jump through some hoops to run Snow Leopard in a virtual box in Windows and the other alternative is to settle for HTML 5 app development. I would like to play around with iOS app development and the entire SDK, but not if it means spending hundreds of dollars getting a miniMac or something.

    Any advice for a would-be iOS/iPad app developer coming from a Windows background and with only PC/Windows tools at hand?

    You can if you jailbreak your iPad. Cydia has an iPad SDK, but don't look to sell your app in the Apple App Store.

    I recommend you to register as an Apple Developer and start creating your apps right now!, you will not regret!

    I've ordered the Mac OSX 10.6.4 Snow Leopard DVD which I plan to run virtualized on my Vista PC. I'll download the iPhone/iPad SDK and then I'll be able to create my own apps once I've learned Objective-C. I know I could never market any apps I create unless I'm a registered developer with Apple.

    Interesting idea!! I'm subscribing to this thread to see if anyone has any definite information on this.

    There are guides to instal Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) in VMWare and Virtualbox. Also for creating a Hackintosh. You will need a reasonably recent PC (with virtualisation support such as an i5 or one of the newer core 2 duo / quads) otherwise it won't run very well.

    I have both a Hackintosh and A VMware version of OS X (at $39 for OSX it is cheaper than running Windows virtualised) and I have XCode installed and running in the VM. You cannot run something like Final Cut in a VM as it checks for real graphics hardware and VWare and Virtualbox don't fool it (but at $1500 for Final Cut creating a Hackintosh doesn't seen so over the top). XCode runs fine.

    I use VMWare Player V3 and I also tried VirtualBox V4.04. Both worked okay but I ended up using VMWare Player as that is the one that was installed when I created my final image. There is little to favour one over the other.
