comment Is this “anti-pattern” and should I stop using it or is this clever design?
... and the big reason that many do it is because data interaction is through services / JSON anyway, so it's likely better to handle all of your data interaction in the same way. (i.e. if you're using AJAX to refresh a table... you should also use it to build the table in the first place.)

comment Java-style package naming and second-level country domains
Right - whatever you choose, be consistent. (Not being consistent with package naming can cause real headaches, like java files split into different roots, issues with testing protected methods, etc,)

comment “Mac” vs “OS X” vs “Mac OS X”
Can't go wrong here - "OS X" is Apple's official name for the operating system post-Mountain Lion.

comment What language was “standard” for Apple development before Objective C?
Ah - thanks. My programming experience on the Apple II was all BASIC as it was my first exposure to programming in general. (Hence we stuck with BASIC and that instruction set.). I also recall doing "Logo", but I don't know if anyone did any serious work with it.
