    I can only see them doing this as a way to push AppleTV. It would let Apple break into the console market overnight. Seems like a pretty big shift through.

    I'm thinking more tech demo of HL3 on an iPad.

    I would play the crap out of tf2 on an ipad, crappy controls and all.

    Uggg...Ipad controls for a non-rails FPS is worse then most Wii games control.
    If we hit that bull's eye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate.

    Yeah. I bought NOVA2 awhile back when it was on sale for .99 and I couldn't get used to the controls.

    Newell says Valve does not share the same values as Apple. He also says the meeting never happened.

    No way, this is fantastic news. I'm glad Valve won't be having any dealings with Apple.

    Is that his way of saying that Valve isn't pure evil?

    You and I have told Valve that they are doing things well... not everything obviously, but with our pockets and money, we have told them that we like the service, the fact that i can keep all my future PC game collection in one location and not having to worry about finding the DVDs etc, are worth all the pain...

    I also am hugely relieved that Valve won't have much (or anything) at all to do with Apple...
