The members of the Trustwave SpiderLabs team have been attending and speaking at these events for many years, so we thought it would be a good idea to give everyone some tips. These will be especially helpful for those who are making the trek to Vegas for the very first time."

Ah, another pontificating buffoon who has never used or seen smalltalk.

Hot flash from the newsroom, genius - ObjectiveC is an extension of C. If you want to use the features of C or call regular C code, you can. Indeed, for some features, such as CALayers, that is the only way to do it.

Now, if you are more comfortable with C++, keep programming in it. Skip the iPhone development a stick to Windows.

Freaking language snobs. Right tool for the job. I use C, Java, ObjectiveC and even a bit of various scripting languages daily. Get over yourself, honestly.
