I'm working through chapter 4 and I am using Xcode 4.4, which seems to have a number of differences from when the 2nd Ed. was written. In the section of the RootViewController.m (actually MasterViewController under the Master App template) there is a specific line in the cellForRowAtIndexPath section that I'd like some help understanding. What is this code suppose to do: NSDate *object = [_objects objectAtIndex:indexPath.row];?

*note that I commented out the Xcode prebuilt code and replaced it with the book code and the App seems to work as it should up till this point. Just wondering what I'm missing by excluding this line.

// Customize the appearance of table view cells.
- (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath
    static NSString *CellIdentifier = @"Cell";
    UITableViewCell *cell = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:CellIdentifier];
    if (cell == nil) {
        cell = [[[UITableViewCell alloc] initWithStyle:UITableViewCellStyleDefault reuseIdentifier:CellIdentifier] autorelease];
        cell.accessoryType = UITableViewCellAccessoryDisclosureIndicator;
    cell.textLabel.text = [self.drinks objectAtIndex:indexPath.row];
    return cell;

    /*NSDate *object = [_objects objectAtIndex:indexPath.row];
    cell.textLabel.text = [object description];
    return cell;*/
