(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

Mark Dalrymple: Objective-C is Stupid (but I still like it):

"So the moral of this poorly-organized story? C is dumb about data. It only does a few blindingly simple things. Objective-C is a very thin layer on top of C, and adds nothing to the existing C syntax. If you’re getting unexpected results with the built-in operators, you’re probably assuming the base language is doing more than it should, and you should update your expectations appropriately."
