Intel, McAfee, Cameron Diaz: Hot Topics for CIOs?

The past week has been an exciting one for tech lovers. It was highlighted by Intel’s surprising plan to acquire security firm McAfee for a whopping $7.68 billion. Exactly what Intel has planned for McAfee is not clear right now, but the chip maker believes that the purchase will help bolster its services (and bottom line). While analyst views on the purchase plans are decidedly mixed, the announcement comes as news headlines are dominated by the latest Facebook scam affecting the social network’s users. It is just the latest example of why you, and your IT staff, need to keep a close eye on what employees are searching for on corporate computers. Other hot topics include RIM’s release of a new and improved BlackBerry App World; and HP’s revelation that enterprise sales helped drive an increase in fiscal 3Q revenue, even as the company continues searching for a suitable replacement to departed CEO Mark Hurd.
