Apple released both the iPhone 5 and iOS 6 this week, but the iOS 6 release in particular had some uncharacteristic slip-ups for the giant from Cupertino. It's still early on the morning of September 21st and there hasn't been enough time for people to discover any flaws in the iPhone 5 yet, but given the iOS 6 news since Wednesday, I bet people will be examining this phone a bit more closely than normal.
That was the sentence Mike Riley ended his recent Dr Dobb's CodeTalk review of Cocoa Programming Developer's Handbook with.
We recently sat down with several top Objective-C and Cocoa developers to talk about that state of the iPhone and OS X markets as we approach this year's WWDC. As we were wrapping up, we threw one last question at them out of curiosity, and we thought you'd like to see what some of them said.

The buzz yesterday was on virtualization. That's still here today, but making just as much noise again this year is SharePoint. And PowerShell is in the air, too.
Microsoft split TechEd into two parts this year: one week for developers, one for "IT Professionals" (database, server, business intelligence, CRM, Office -- basically almost everyone who isn't strictly a developer, I guess). Because of my editorial slant, I'm attending the IT Pro week right now.
InformationWeek released its 2008 U.S. Salary Survey, and it shows the first decline in salaries for business technology professionals in its 11-year history. So is it time to panic?
