Games AppleInsider, once one of the better Apple news sites, is rumouring that Apple CEO Tim Cook was spotted at Valve's HQ. Considering all the rumours Valve is working on a console (more fuel for the flames), this could potentially be interesting. As much as AppleInsider's story is being spread across the web - can anybody actually verify AI's story? It cites no sources, and could, for all we know, be completely made up. Anyone...?

>Apple is about fewer numbers of products and concentrating on quality rather than products for everything.

I upvotes a couple of people in this thread so I hate to reply and undo it but this isn't true.

Apple makes 2 operating systems, OSX and iOS. They make their own laptops, desktop computers, phones, tablets, MP3/music players, monitors, wireless routers, media center computer, and some of the chips in them. They also run a store that sells other people's music, software, and movies.

Even for OSX they make a lot of their own utilities like automator and software like iLife (photo, movie, garage band etc.), iWork (office suite), Final Cut, Xcode, Server etc.

They do everything from A to Z with gaming being one of the few notable exceptions. Gaming has been a successful market on the iPhone and iPad so it makes sense to allow casual cames to be played on the Apple TV as well.

If I can get passable game graphics on a 2 year old tablet that runs off a battery I am sure some future Apple TV version could do the same. Apple has made a fortune in the music industry but if somene wants to buy a movie online they do it on a PS3 or Xbox mostly and I am sure it something they want to change.

It may not be that they want to be in gaming as much as it is that the gaming companies are perfectly positioned to make a killing on movie sales now so it is a move that makes a lot of sense.
