I was just wondering if The Final Hours of Portal 2 is available somehow for people who don't own an iPad?
EDIT: It is now possible to get it on Steam : http://store.steampowered.com/app/104600/

Q: Why would you make this for iPad? I don’t own an iPad but really want to read it. It’s not fair!
A: I know this will be a frequent question. I started with iPad because I love the device; in many ways it helped inspire me to write this story. It’s a good platform to publish log-form journalism with multimedia elements. But I do realize that iPads are expensive to own and many Valve fans may not have one. If the iPad version is somewhat successful I am committed to getting this story onto other platforms. I appreciate your patience.
But Geoff Keighley changes his mind quickly so he fixed your problem by making it available through Steam.
And just to mess with my answer, they even removed the top part of my answer from the site's FAQ. But I guess we don't care ;-)
Directly from Geoff Keighley twitter channel, couple of hours ago he said
To everyone asking, YES, you'll be able to experience Final Hours of Portal 2 on other platforms soon! Thanks for your interest.
So it is just a matter of time now.
UPDATE: Portal 2 - Final Hours is now available on Steam (Mac/PC platforms)
This was covered in another answer. The app is essentially using .pngs, so if you were desperate, I imagine you could open the app that you've downloaded from iTunes and peruse the PNGs at your leisure.
Check out the comments on the answer here:
