Intel is acquiring Mcafee for cash. I'm still scratching my head to figure out why a semiconductor company is buying a software company, but that doesn't change the fact that its bullish for the market.

integrating anti-viri tech into the chipset on the motherboard and charging for a hardware based virus scanner that frees up cycles for the main processor is the first thing that comes to mind, not to mention security appliances with monthly or annual charges

Too bad that Mcafee has the crappiest anti virus software known to man in my opinion.
