The lights are on
Rumors circulated last week that Apple CEO Tim Cook visited Valve's offices. Gabe Newell says that actually didn't happen.
"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,'" Newell said in a podcast with 7DCD. "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."
In an unrelated note, It was also revealed that Valve was hiring hardware engineers for "new gaming experiences."
