    OK, maybe a stupid question, maybe just lack of any clarification from Apple...

    Is there a way to buy & run iPhone apps on a Mac? Some of them definitely seem useful. Obviously I don't have a iPhone.

    When I bought my Blackbook a few years ago it was all about the widgets for Macs. Now... no widget hype, all app hype :(

    Dont think there is a way right now. But I too would pay for a iPhone emulator to run certain iPhone apps on my desktop.

    Huh ^^^ ???

    Are you talking about the iPhone Simulator? If so, you can only use that to run apps that you have the source code (xcode file) for....and not everyday apps that you buy on the App Store.

    Also, iPhone apps are written in Objective-C.
