Omigawd, they're going to put that crap into firmware.

Maybe they are thinking they can do the same thing Microsoft did when
they bought RAV and remade it into a superior product.

Just wondering ....
What can Intel gain from McAffee..... and what is the wisdom of such
deal?
Maybe if that deal will push through....PC users will switch to Apple
products or just  go to Linux...

"When we look several years out, almost every device in the home is
likely to be connected to the Internet. Intel clearly wants to
participate in that market," said Chris Hickey, an analyst with
Atlantic Equities. "By being able to differentiate with a security
offering, they may well have an edge over the competition."

This must be worth $7.7 billion to them.

But there won't be any differentiation.. Everyone will offer "security."

I mean, would you buy a web-connected fridge that anybody could snoop? ;-)

There are more attacks on OS-X, IOW, it is less secure than it was, and
so is Linux. The latest updates to OS-X and Ubuntu were "security updates."

It could be their way of pushing a techological change in their product
line. For instance, if the AV companies were reluctant to implement
their software support for Intel's proposed "hardware acceleration" for
AV scanners - Intel can now do as they please and be assured at least
one major AV will support it.

That won't make any difference. I think that this is an architectural
shift in processor design and other processor manufacturers will likely
follow suit. Of course, I could be wrong and the whole idea is to add
bloat to EEPROM chips.

I doubt it.  It is more like they will com up with embedded anti malware
specifically for
mobile devices like smart phones.

I agree,m that's a likely scenario, but IMO they'll have to do some work
to bring McAfee up to the needed level. Good luck to them.

In that area, I disagree.
