Own an iPad but not a Mac? Think you are left out of the development party? Think again. Grab a DVD of OSX Snow Leopard, Oracle VirtualBox 4, and Empire EFI 3 and dive in. Look online for EFI Boot, USB, and Sound drivers.
Set up the VM as a single core Mac Mini and enjoy.
Use Network Places and GL Display to get sync folders in the VM, hardware graphics, and GIT repository. Install Xcode 4 and mount iPhone or iPad directly to the VM.
You can now run applications on the iPhone simulator or Device of your choice.
One drawback, you cannot register the VM with Apple Developer Connections and use for Publishing to App Store.
