Valve says it’s jumping into the computer hardware business 
In a job listing for the “industrial designer” position on Valve’s website, the company has finally made its hardware ambitions explicit: Valve says “we’re frustrated by the lack of innovation of in the computer hardware space, so we’re jumping in.” The job listing says that “even in basic input, the keyboard and mouse, haven’t really changed much in any meaningful way over the years,” but stops short of naming alternative hardware. For months, evidence suggesting Valve’s entrance to the hardware market has piled up: there’s the rumored “Steam Box” platform, murmurs of a wearable computing project, and job listings for engineers.

    When it comes to Valve’s wearable computing project, they’re hardly “murmurs”. Valve has been talking about the project...
