Is this a rumor about a rumor, or just a second guess of a second guess?



Maybe a nice idea, but unlikely to join the club this late.

Only if gaming technology had a big change, another company could enter at a bearable risk.

Pippin is also a type of apple, closely related to the McIntosh variety.

Another platform would be too costly for games developers. At most Apple could update Apple TV to include an AppStore style interface for downloading puzzle games. With a multi-touch widescreen attached it could make for some interesting two player touchscreen games.
