Yes, I know. It's just when I see "happy", "Apple" and "iPhone SDK" on 
an Apple employee's mouth here, I felt a strong urge on the spur of 
moment to express my discontent towards Apple people who think they 
should make us buy their iMac just to be able to code freeware 
applications on iPhone. I've been waiting for so long time until an 
official SDK is released and finally you get : "no, guy ! you cannot ! 
you must be an Apple geek !".

@Mike Stump (mrs at apple.com) : Just for your information, I'm in Europa. 
Here in France, iMac are very expensive for what they are. Anyway, 
that's a very selfish and rude way for you to tell us : "if you really 
want to code some iPhone applications, just buy an iMac. $600 is 
nothing". You know what ? 600€ is NOT $600 (apparently the price for an 
old model and second-hand). Worse, the usual price I can find here is 
above 1000€. Not only that, for each model I can see, it is too much 
expensive for what its hardware is. I don't know how much money you earn 
but don't think people here can afford an iMac at the same price you can 
afford in USA. And the real point is : people shouldn't be forced to buy 
an iMac only so they could code iPhone applications.

You don't need to answer, I was just ironically acknowledging Chris 
Lattner's annoucement. I'm not expecting for Apple to change their 
politics by my action here anyway.
