"Their main concern is that Intel’s plan to put security features directly in its chips could put McAfee’s rivals at a severe disadvantage."

 

I'm all for having some hardware security going on. Would greatly help cut down on malware, but if it's enabled to work only with McAfee software, that's an issue.

If they were to licenses the plugin or whatever to allow other AV apps to interact with the hardware security then thats fine.

This is just so stupid........
