The iPhone Gold Rush

Like so many others (Trism creator Steve Demeter, for example), independent programmers are finding ways to make iPhone development a full-time job. Apple probably doesn’t mind that all of these people can now create applications for the Mac as well. After all, both platforms use Cocoa and Objective-C and the transition from Cocoa Touch (on iPhone) to Cocoa and AppKit (on the desktop) is a fairly gradual one.
