    Default McAfee takeover

    The McAfee deal will see the integration of security into hardware, into the chips powering much of our computer-driven world. It also bolsters Intel's attempts to become more than a chip maker as it develops its own consumer devices and offering of IT services.

    Not a McAfee fan...but the chip security concept sounds interesting....waiting to see the bugs from Intel chips in the future

    But then again...I am not CEO of a Multi Billion dollar company

    It does sound interesting. I wonder how you set security at the chip level though. It would be only a matter of time before someone found a way to defeat it.
