Intel Buys McAfee

In Andy Grove's book Only the Paranoid Survive, he told the story of how Intel started and how they were a memory chip company.

They, of course, evolved into CPUs but were always a silicon chip company.

So why spend $7.68 billion for McAfee? Sure security is increasingly more important but Intel makes chips - better than anyone else - and should focus on that IMO.
