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.

I guess there was board meeting and they decided to go mcDonalds when someone rushed in and yelled "We have too much money!" and only thing they could come up in panic was to buy McAfee. I'm sure there is better theories.
