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.

Maybe they bought it to destroy McAffee Anti-Virus because some shareholder was bitten by that horrid product!

One could only hope....
