David and Jerry, 

The customer could avoid having to buy any Mac hardware if they could design their app on the Rodeo website itself. The website could act as a development IDE and a simulator both. When you are done designing your app then anyone could download the app from the Rodeo website. This would be very good advertizing for Rodeo because people could see all the apps made with it.

One question for Jerry:

Why are you targeting the iPad and not the iPhone. I know you like to stay ahead of the curve, but it seems like there are a lot more potential customers for iPhone.
