Repost, with comments: Intel Axes McAfee Security Brand, Repositions as Key Mobile Player

This is an interesting article for a few reasons.  Not only is Intel planning to disassociate itself from the McAfee branding, but their play into the "internet of things" can theoretically shake up the industry, providing many more opportunities for connectivity of, well, everything through their Edison chip.

Connecting people and technology is not new for industrial automation, at least within the confines of the plant and enterprise.  What IS new is the extension outside of our domain, to the "real world" which provides additional context to the events.  It's all about being smarter and more informed.  This looks like a very interesting year ahead of us for progress.
