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.

Apparently Intel has some deep pockets and shareholder money to burn. Someone on that board of directors is going to swing for this.
