7:53 pm: What about the gaming space. You've sort of fallen into being a big player in the gaming space. Do you see that as somethign

Cook: I view that we are in gaming now in a fairly big way. One of the reasons people buy an iPod touch is gaming. Some buy it for music. I realize that is not the big screen you are talking about. Gaming has kind of evolved a bit. More people play on portable devices. Where we might go in the future, we'll see. Customers love games.

I'm not interested in being in the console business in what is thought of as traditional gaming.

Apple is a big player today and things in the future will only make that bigger.

But what about the TV?

"I think it could be interesting," Cook said.

Playing Word Search and Bejewled makes you part of the pass-the-time-during-commutes-and-other-dull-times games market, not the console or PC market.

I'd rather own a console made by Apple than Microsoft.
I'd also prefer not to own either.

I'd rather own a console that has games I'm interested in. I don't care who makes it as long as I'm happy with it and the price is reasonable. Well that second part would rule out Apple anyway.

Reasonable compared to what? For what features and services? Most Apple hardware is premium priced but their software is dirt cheap. I doubt Apple would ever make a console, they'll just continue to support developers who want to get their titles on to iOS and OS X and most likely the future tv.

Reasonable to my standards for the maximum I will pay for a console, as in no more than $300.

I see apple doing something like onlive, it'd be the perfect thing for them to do through apple tv, itv, iPad...ect. They could onlive with their pocket change.
