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.

For company like McAfee who is not the no. 1 in Anti Virus solution and the market where there are more than 10+ anti virus companies are already present, getting a valuation of 7.6 billion for McAfee, tells me how big security market is!
Intel has done their home work. ;)
