    How'd he made some sort of Objective-C emulator on PB? I also hope it's GNU-compatible and clean room reversed engineered too.

    Hmm interesting... Not sure what I think of it yet, however if it is real I'm sure Apple will find some way to bring the fury of their entire legal department down on this guy.

    True, but we just had a ruling that said APIs are not copyright protected. So if you wrote an iOS emulator it may fall under that umbrella.

    It goes by very quickly so I might have missed it....

    The very last second of the first video when he closes the app I do not see any of those icons on his playbook.

    The one "Brine" icon launches the emulator, which can load any of the apps. As devuser, you can only install 10 apps, so I have a menu system which lets me select which app to run.

    Are you going to release this to the general public and might as well get this out of the way, does Skype work?

    Doesn't matter.. Apple lawyers in 3, 2, 1.. that's even assuming legit. The obtaining of the .ipa files needed, not the API's will be questioned.. let alone the fact of getting it past App World approval.

    Hmm... Releasing it as public domain software would be a very great idea. Make sure it has a GNU license so it cannot be removed and MIRROR THE OUT OF IT while you are at it. I'm talking about bittorrent, peer 2 peer (p2p) and sharing on social networks!!, this way, it cannot be taken out.

    I love this work, PROPS TO YOU DEVELOPER!!

    Maybe I'll convince people not to get an ipad once this is mainstream open source!

    PS. Release the source code and a .tar.gz so people can compile it on other operating systems too. I like where this is going.

    **DISCLAIMER** I don't support anything illegal, but I DO support the sharing of one's hard work by all means necessary.

    I'd assume the developer would own the app so only they would be able to deny access.

    This could be a devastating blow to apple.

    The more I think about it the more I dislike the closed app system approach apple has.

    What Bla1ze said. Obtaining of the .ipa files. I have a ton of apps bought from app store, the .ipa files are just lying around my computer. If this goes live, it would be huge for me. But i'm guessing so would the legal implications. Just look at PlayBook with Android .apk.

    BTW, great work! the demo looks silky smooth.

    I would release it, and pretend its fully legal, like apple.
    What are they going to do? Get rich off you? Are you rich? They would probably pay you to not further develop this.

    A huge corporation like RIM can't get its android runtime to run any app as complex as those. This guy did this by himself without a big bankroll? It is hard to believe it's true.

    I must say, it's pretty hard to believe. Emulating an entire CPU, like that at near native speeds seems like a pipe dream, let alone the GPU, I/O and sound engine. Modern desktop PCs still have trouble emulating the Nintendo Wii...

    Still, I'll suspend my disbelief for now, but I'm VERY skeptical here. And for those saying this would be hard to fake...not really at all.
