I have a friend that was not very clear on what the money was spent on but claimed that there was on the order of $3000 required to tool up to be able to develop for the iphone/ipad. I cannot see how. The only pay part of the process seems to be the $99.... Does anyone know what he is talking about? Did there used to be a high charge for the tools from Apple? Is there a higher level of developer than what the introductory threads discuss?
