Last week Apple’s CEO Tim Cook was spotted at video game designer Valve’s headquarter last week and think the meet would be for Apple-Valve partnership on some amazing product than you would be wrong as according to Valve head honcho Gabe Newell, the rumor reported by Apple Insider isn’t correct. “No one here was meeting with Tim Cook or with anybody at Apple that day. I wish we were,” he told the Seven Day Cooldown podcast. He added that he’d never met Tim Cook at all, inside or outside his Bellvue, Washington headquarters.

Gabe Newell told Seven Day Cooldown:

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.” 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.
