So even though my newly created second object passes validation, the other invalid one is still in there, trying to be saved, constantly failing. Read more →

Odd bug with inheritance and Objective C synthesized properties (with solution)

OpenID and iPhone apps

I am trying to find an OpenID implementation that is similar to the way that Facebook Connect’s login mechanism works on the iPhone. I can’t find anything, which is very surprising.
