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...?

I don't see why Valve would need Apple's help getting into the console market. I also don't see why Valve would want to make Steambox anything like an Apple product, because Apple products are completely closed and proprietary, where Steam is fairly open.

Maybe it's the other way around? If Apple wants to launch an upgraded Apple TV with games, they might want Valve's catalogue on it? Plus, if they wanted it, Apple has more than enough cash to buy Valve.

Since Valve is privately held just having plenty of money doesn't mean Apple could purchase it.
