    OK, so this news had me scratching my head, too, but if it's such a terrible idea, why didn't Intel get pounded in the market today? The report came out late yesterday, and today INTC beat the DJIA and SPY in terms of gains. So... Yeah...

    @Joe: So, you still think the McAfee acquisition was a "brutally bad acquisition"? Haven't you read the recent releases about Intel's latest Xeon processors, and how their collaboration with McAfee has led to groundbreaking advances in server security? You're not looking at the big picture here. To try to beat the ever-increasing threat of new malware, Intel/McAfee has gone "below the OS" to the silicon to provide industry-leading security so that you can use your smartphone to do things like wave it at a cash register to make a payment without risking identity theft.

    Dude, do some research before you regurgitate historical, populist views on the McAfee acquisition. It made sense at the time (to those of us who saw that integrating security into the hardware was necessary for the future growth of the compute continuum), and it's bearing fruit now, less than a year after being finalized (or close to a year).

    I think Chris is barking up the right tree, here...

    Fool on!... :-)
