Valve not making hardware they say? Yet now hiring a hardware engineer?

So despite shooting down the rumors of a ‘STEAM BOX’, it looks like Valve certainly is looking for a hardware engineer.
As read here in a interview with Penny Arcade, Gabe Newell said:

Well, if we have to sell hardware we will. We have no reason to believe we’re any good at it, it’s more we think that we need to continue to have innovation and if the only way to get these kind of projects started is by us going and developing and selling the hardware directly then that’s what we’ll do. It’s definitely not the first thought that crosses our mind; we’d rather hardware people that are good at manufacturing and distributing hardware do that. We think it’s important enough that if that’s what we end up having to do then that’s what we end up having to do.”

I suppose we’ll need to wait and see what happens. I love me some speculation!
