Intel Chalk this one up on the 'uh, what?'-list of acquisitions. Intel announced today that it has acquired Mcafee, the security and antivirus company we all know and love. The press release is a bit vague on why, exactly, Intel made this rather odd acquisition.

Seems strange here...this looks like a windows centric purchase. Then come to think of it, intel wants to break into the mobile space. The most recent bad mobile news we've been seen of late are trojans being released through the market places. I wonder if Intel has an eye on some solution to this problem?
