    My parents just got 2 Mac's (laptop and Mac Pro), I'm wondering how I can start learning, I believe I read somewhere that the software is on the dvd is this true?

    Install XCode. I just downloaded the iPhone SDK from Apple website.

    Then read here for some good books to get going with.

    Look at the install disks. You might have to scroll the window down.

    Assuming Leopard's like Tiger, it should be on the first disk.

    I never get tired of telling people about the becomeanxcoder tutorial at www.cocoalab.com/. It's slightly outdated, but you should be able to figure out the few differences and everything it teaches still applies. It assumes you don't know how to program, so anyone can use it. It teaches Obj-C and Cocoa, using Xcode and Interface Builder. Unfortunately it's not very long, I wish it continued but it's plenty enough for a starter.

    Use Google, this forum, and whatever books and tutorials/resources you find and you'll be able to learn!
