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...?

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.

Other than that, I highly doubt Gabe would want to sell his company to Apple. Valve is as open and consumer-friendly a game company running an online game store can be - the complete antithesis to Apple.

Water and fire, basically.
