I saw a report on CNN's webstite about the creator of "Trism, the hottest new iPhone game". (video: www.cnn.com/2008/TECH/11/18/iphone.game ... nnSTCVideo
In the report, he stated that in order to make and sell games, you have to go to Apple's website, join the iTune's store for $100.00 and that you would need a mac computer.
I'm a newb to gaming. Is this correct? Thank you for any info you can provide in setting me start.

It must be true, because every company that owns a platform for which you can develop games offers a kit for that purpose and the licence to make profit from their product in exchange for a price.
While developing "games" for the IPhone with AM though you don't need to buy any other kit and you can sell your games through iGiki, but they will not be official

It is correct only if you want to create natively compiled applications. However, if you want to create web applications (such as those generated by Adventure Maker, and those that you can find here: http://www.apple.com/webapps/
), you don't have those restrictions.
