Smalltalk (left) and Apple (right) pretend like no-one is going to notice.
I have delayed learning Objective-C for as long as possible. In the last 3 weeks I have been coming up to speed on the language and frameworks involved for the iPhone. What follows is the quick reference guide that I couldn’t find when I started learning this awkward language.
This guide won’t make you an expert but it explains enough so that you can crawl through some Objective-C and understand what is going on.

Falsely accused, sysfs does hard time.
I am building a track record of choosing projects that somehow flex the limits of what is easily doable on the Palm Pre.
First I wanted to use the Palm Pre as a mass storage device on my Xbox 360. The unraveling of that rabbit-hole took a full month. Now I want to be able to create and mount regular files as USB devices on the Palm Pre (an app I’m calling USB Mass Storage Tool). This time I am hitting a technical limitation imposed by Palm.
The current limitation is that sysfs is not available for applications to read/write from within the jailed environment in which apps run.
