@Joe: is it uncommon to develop both of these skills? to become a developer and a designer?

It's uncommon in the sense that it's rare for someone to have true interest in both. One point I really tried to drive home is that unless you really love designing user interfaces, you really shouldn't be doing it because it will come across in your work.

That said, there are some Mac developers that do successfully both design the UI and implement the application itself. The reason, I expect, is that they love doing both. It's certainly a lot of work to do absolutely everything yourself, so even if you want to be the only product guy to start, you may want to find one-to-three other people to do support, PR, and so on.

Thanks for the kind words.
