Quite a stir was caused last week by reports that Apple's Tim Cook had paid a visit to Valve headquarters in Washington state.
Speculation ran rampant over why the CEO of the world's most famous hardware maker would pay a visit to the popular gaming software maker after AppleInsider reported the rumor. Might a gaming console for the long-awaited Apple TV be in the works? Or perhaps a challenger to Google Glasses, the augmented-reality specs the Web giant is working on?
Apparently, the SevenDayCooldown. However, the rumor turned out to be just a rumor, much to Newell's own disappointment:to the Valve campus, the software maker's CEO, Gabe Newell, explained to
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.
