Remember those rumours that appeared last week placing Apple CEO Tim Cook at Valve HQ in Washington? Turns out that they were false, so time to drop the welcome banned for a co-branded console from Apple and Valve, and return to sulking about the fact that the Steambox doesn't exist.
Gabe Newell confirmed that the rumours were false on the Seven Day Cooldown podcast.
We actually, we all sent mail to each other, going, "Who's Tim Cook meeting with? Is he meeting with you? I'm not meeting with Tim Cook." So we're... it's one of those rumors that was stated so factually that we were actually confused.
No one here was meeting with Tim Cook or with anybody at Apple that day. I wish we were! We have a long list of things we'd love to see Apple do to support games and gaming better. But no, we didn't meet with Tim Cook. He seems like a smart guy, but I've never actually met him." - Gabe Newell, Valve
So that's an end to that one then.
