Valve Bringing Steam To Macs In April

PC gamers might have been troubled to learn yesterday that Valve's digital distribution service for PC games, Steam, was offline and completely inaccessible for more than an hour yesterday. The timing was inconvenient, what with Valve boss Gabe Newell confirming last week that more user information was likely obtained in a 2011 hacking than was previously thought.

Valve quickly confirmed yesterday afternoon that Steam's service interruption was the result of a power failure rather than anything sinister. Valve took to Twitter a few hours after the outage occurred to alert users to what had happened: "Our data center's [universal power supply] experienced a power failure. Power is back on now and working to get service restored asap."

In other words: move along, people. Nothing to see here.
