    This is like a double-whammy of news; Valve might be taking potential interest in making hardware (wearable computers like an Omni-Tool or Pip-Boy would be amazing), AND Gabe's grown a beard. Amazing.

    No, it's the full photo, unless they somehow invented CSI level uncropping software.

    The half-life 3 logo is probably shopped though.
    It was clearly the content-awareness tool at work.

    Dude, do you not see how the rest of the sign is completely blurry while the HL3 logo is the only crisper one? It's HORRIBLY photoshopped.

    Besides, look at Kotaku's pic:



    That's a + sign, the Medic from TF2.

    He's starting to rock the Santa beard

    Seriously, he's got the glasses and everything.
    Gabe Newell confirmed for being Santa all along. It explains all the free things valve gives out.

    I really hope Valve do make their own hardware (as in some sort of Console), as I'm sure it would allow at least some multi-player, and game updates.
    There is a lack of current consoles that allow spontainious hat updates.

    Valve time man. He's been working on the company for decades, while people on the outside think it's out been a few years.

    Why a console? That goes against their belief in an open upgradable system.

    I think the more important part that can be extracted from the interview is that they're working on episode 3 / half-life 3 as hard as they can.

    I think that by hardware, they don't mean consoles, I think they mean gadgets for the PC.
