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.

Whatever McAfee brings to the table (and I think their product sucks, but that's me), I can't imagine that it was worth Intel dropping that kind of cash on them.
