Apple's Cook Visits Valve?

Apple Insider writes Apple CEO Tim Cook reportedly visited the Bellevue, Washington headquarters of Valve Corporation today. They proceed to get so caught up in speculation of the possible implications of this that they never get around to explaining the source of this report. Thanks GameInformer.

More realistically, I wonder if perhaps Apple will use Steam as its primary game delivery system for iPanel. But then Apple already has the app store. Hmmm.

that actually makes a lot of sense because the app store does not have the ability to roll out large patches/updates for games. maybe steam will handle AAA titles and the app store the casual games.

I don't think it makes any sense. There's no reason for Apple not to use their own store.

edit: Thinking about it some more... they probably are talking about the store-in-a-store situation. Came up between Apple and Amazon, Valve and EA... Apple is probably working out a peace agreement with Steam, wonder what they want for their cut.
