Intel opens up their wallet, unveils a "condom for your digital life", or McAfee's Social Protection

Day two of keynotes have happened at the Intel Developer Forum, where Renee James, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Intel's Software & Services Group talked about software development, security and services in an "age of transparent computing".

The keynote involved a security-centric portion, where Renee grabbed a representative from Intel's McAfee division, where they showed off a beta release of the McAfee Social Protection app. McAfee's Social Protection app will be released soon as both an application, and browser plug-in for Facebook that makes people sharing their photos more secure.

McAfee's Social Protection would take this one step further, where it would, when installed, not allow people to copy or capture your images. As it stands, right now if anyone wants to download or screen capture your picture, they can do so without a problem. The McAfee Social Protection demo rep claimed that "McAfee Social Protection - It's like a condom for your digital life." I would've loved to have been there to hear that said out aloud.

With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
