This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
The agreement between you and Apple does not have any affect on Stack Overflow.
If you are concerned about whether your particular usage of Stack Overflow violates your NDA/contract with Apple, please consult a lawyer. As a third party, Stack Overflow is not part of the contract/NDA, and is certainly not qualified to give you legal advice on how to meet the requirements of a contract to which it has no interest or part.
Make sure you do not drink too much German beer and leave your device at the bar. It might fetch a lot of money on the open market.
Apple's Registered iPhone Developer Agreement is available for viewing here (PDF). From that public document, I quote the section on confidentiality:
No one who is not a registered iPhone / iPad developer on Stack Overflow is subject to this agreement, because they did not agree to it. While those of us who are iPhone developers may be breaking NDA by posting questions and answers on pre-release material, no one else can get in trouble for doing so, particularly since they would not have had access to this material outside of a leak somewhere.
Anything that is in a current public release of the SDK, or that has been disclosed by Apple in a public event or on the Web, is perfectly fine for registered iPhone developers to discuss here.
Standard disclaimer: I am not a lawyer, I've just signed many NDAs over the years.
