@Mike Nowak: is it better to dive right in and use bindings and CoreData and Obj-C 2.0, etc.?

Learning all three at once would probably be a bit much. I would say go ahead and use Objective-C 2.0 syntax (fast iteration, properties, dot syntax) because the benefits are substantial and are as easy to learn as the rest of the language.

Bindings is pretty straightforward for simple cases, but you could wait. As intermediate step, you could use it just for setting up user Preferences. It's incredibly easy to use for that case and very helpful.

Most people would say that Core Data is too advanced as a beginner topic, and I think that's probably true. But I think you should learn it as soon as you are able. I think most apps can benefit from using Core Data in some way.
