  • Tim Cook Spotted at Valve Headquarters



    According to Apple Insider Tim Cook visited the headquarters of Valve. Yes, Gordon Freeman and Steam digital distribution Valve.

    While the purpose of Cook’s visit is unknown, visiting Valve’s HQ holds more significance than a simple phone call. Other sites and writers have jumped to the conclusion Apple and Valve could be collaborating on something but, this is undoubtedly an unfounded rush to judgement. While it would make sense that a game distribution giant like Valve and App distribution behemoth like Apple would want to talk, the possibility of Apple and Valve working together in other ways is enticing.

    Valve could be picking Apple’s brain in terms of hardware to accompany the Steam platform. Rumors have surfaced claiming Valve wants to offer its own Steam related hardware, and recent job postings asking for hardware engineers appear to confirm such goals. But, again this is unfounded speculation.

    But, one can only wish that perhaps Apple and Valve might be collaborating in terms of iOS and Mac game awesomeness.

    Please let this mean something.

      It would be nice if they combined a gaming platform with the rumored integrated iTV. Perhaps Valve is collaborating with Apple for an 'OnLive' type gaming service that could run independent of hardware specification to keep price down. It would be cool if apple could come up with a device to replace every bit of electronics in your living room except the TV screen. No game system, bluray, dvd, reciever, etc, cluttering up space. Clean, functional, elegant, Apple.

      Seems a little unlikely seeing as though they would have to find a way of making it very compressed but only time will tell; afterall - making complicated systems simple is what Apple does best.

      My thoughts exactly! I mean why not? There was even a rumor not too long ago, that Apple were designing a game controller.
      I'm really hoping you're right

      It could also be why they never approved of the onlive app that enabled this functionality. I'm kinda bitter at Apple. Because onlive has this technology and the controller ready to go(since like December)

      Maybe Apple is trying to break into the console market? There was talk that Valve was in plans to start their own console. It would be, essentially, a small gaming computer dedicated to Steam downloads. I really, really like that idea!
