Same problem here with a twelve year old and an iTouch. We had to terminate app store purchases completely. It's quite addictive.
Apple is not in direct competition with chip manufacturers. It is a customer. A customer of an industry that developed without Apple as their main customer. I am sure Apple is happy to pit chip suppliers against each other, and happy as well to let them sell their products to others.

That's a fun scenario to consider. LOL. Of course it would take them a couple of years to ramp up production to fill that order. The antitrust issues of wiping out their smaller competitors by giving away free products would be crazy.
