this series of articles is a nice introduction to cocoa objective-c development and i appreciate it a lot, but the author uses some strange phraseology. example: "So, now you both understand the structure of a class in source code, and how to make one with less work." doesn't that sound like the author only expects two people to be reading this article? why not say "So, now you understand both..."?
that example is benign, but it can get confusing: "New objects are created by sending an alloc message to the class object of the class you wish to make an instance of." see now, i would've thought that i'd send an alloc message to the class object of the class that i didn't wish to make an instance of. how about just sending an alloc message to the class i wish to make an instance of?
