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.

Mcaffee is a lot more profitable and it already has established relationships with many OEMs.

Its like choosing to buy Mc Donanld corp or a five star restaurant.

Companies are not solely based on the quality of their product.
