While I support Tesla's efforts against these ridiculous laws, and would personally like to see them challenged and struck down, could they not just lease the cars through a subsidiary that would hold the title (turning the new car into a used car), then transfer the title after the lease period is up? Or are leases treated in the same way as sales, and prevented under state law as well?

And btw, I notice that, with 99 comments in, nobody else has bothered to actually provide you with the links to the official Apple iOS developers or Android developers docs, api, tools, etc. I at least showed enough respect for you to expect you to benefit from them. Was I wrong? Only time will tell.

You know, if he can't use Google he's really bad off.

Back in 1990 if you were an experienced C developer and hadn't looked seriously at OO languages it was understandable. In 2014, if you haven't at least dabbled with C++, Java or C# I think it shows a definite unwillingness to learn. So that's why the OP is getting "condescending" answers like "just hire someone"

You don't know Apple, or iOS developers. Dominant over ObjC within two years (and by the end of next year that prediction will probably seem ridiculously conservative).

Oh really? Drink some more koolaid. Remember how long it took to lay Carbon to rest. And the Cocoa APIs are still incomplete in many areas. Then take a look back at all the new programming languages and frameworks Apple has introduced over the years and then shot in the head. Dylan? OpenDoc?

I'd say it's 50/50 whether or not Swift will get enough traction to continue on.

Nobody said computers were going to be polite.
