John McAfee probably smiled like this at the exciting news. Things are finally looking up for John McAfee! Intel is dropping his name from the godforsaken antivirus software he sold to them in 1994, meaning the international man of mystery is finally free to party with strippers and snort bath salts and shoot guns at shit to his heart’s content…oh wait, that happened already. And now that you’ve lost your breakfast appetite, the news: Digital Trends reported that at CES on Monday, Intel boss Brian Krzanich announced that his company was embarking on a year-long rebranding exercise, part of which will involve replacing the “McAfee Antivirus” title with “Intel Security.”  Mr. McAfee has, after all, publicly lamented (again, see here) the fact he still receives volumes of mail begging for directions to uninstall the software, even though he sold the company to Intel for $7.7 billion more than fifteen years ago.
