thought on the mac app store

Initially, having an App Store on the Mac looks like the beginning of the end of the “open” environment of OS X. But if the App Store on Mac proves to be successful (despite the fact that it currently has an open environment for installing apps), it actually seems more likely for iOS to be opened up as well. If the App Store is a draw for developers on the Mac, then it’s unlikely that most developers would abandon the store on iOS even if it became an open environment as well.

Just a thought.
