    Im well pissed off today. My hatred for Apple runs deep. Im a serious windows fanboy, I hate Apple becauseof their closed OS policy and I love windows because I can do anything I want with it.

    That said, I decided to start developing a few iPhone apps. So I found a guide, had a quick read and went out and bought the new iPad3 with top specs. After jumping through a ton of hoops setting up the developer account, I went to try and download Xcode. It turnes out that you cant run Xcode on an iPad... WTF, and the reason given for this by Apple is... None what so ever, their support forums are full of people who made the same mistake as me.

    Yeah, I suppose the guide I read is partially to blame. But seriously... Why the fuck cant Xcode run on an iPad3, the processor is easily powerful enough to run the program. This is just another example of a stupid Apple rule that make sod all sense.

    So now I'm stuck with an overpriced supped up gameboy, that's only going to be used by my girlfriend to play angry birds.

    Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    I'm not familiar with Xcode, but could you run it on another computer and download a remote client for the iPad?

    It may be circular logic but it is better then having a glorified gameboy ;)

    @GST : Oh well if you want to feel any better, you will be able to test your app with the iPad 3 even though there is a iPhone simulator in the iPhone dev tools.

    But, if you want to not put any more dime in it. I strongly recommand you to set up Hackintosh. (Mac OS on PC)

    There is a torrent which is a vmware image of Lion precompiled and working smoothly. I'm going to look for it for you.

    If you have a gigabyte motherboard, ATI graphic card you have a great chance to set up hackintosh in dual boot.

    I only use a laptop as Im travelling, so my desktop is at home collecting dust. Not sure if my laptop will be able to handle it. It would seem that i might have to just go buy a macbook...

    Double Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    I know you do have a laptop :p. I saw the photo where you collapsed on it ;).

    Anyway, just try it some dudes say they can run it on a 1 GB machine.

    I did it on 2 GB allocated to the VM.

    However, i dunno it is works on AMD CPU. It worth trying and you'll save $1,500 :)

    Worse case scenario, you could rent a windows VPS and set the image there. If you look for that, pm me i could do it for you with the lowest cost possible (for the VPS itself, the set up would be on me)
