This morning I'm calling this the "gateway computer" model (sic).   In  
so far as Apple can make it nearly impossible to route around the app  
store they can give away the hardware and make it up on the razor  
blades.   This, of course, require taking control of the compiler tool  
chain, and drawing developers further into the thrall of their IDEs.    
But Microsoft had pretty good luck with that; and the game box  
developers and the telcos have had pretty good luck limiting  
developers ability to route around their garden walls.

The chance that Apple will say "We own your tool chain dudes!" is zero.
