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.

But as far as I read in the news, they do more research than Karspersky and find more flaw/viruses. Just as Norten, they are so targetted by malware that it render the product useless. This would not happen if it was hardware. I am not saying it is a good AV, but it is not a mediocre firm.
