    McAfee has decided to get in to the short URL game. Why? Possibly because they were looking for an additional reason for techies to loathe them -- if there's one thing more hated than craptacular software, it's yet another URL truncator.

    The theory is that people will use McAfee's short URL service because the links are managed by a trusted recognized security company. I'll say this for mcaf.ee: their landing page sure is salmon-colored. Beyond that, this is just another ho-hum link shortener -- they're not even the first provider to offer "safe" links. Bit.ly has been working with Websense and Sophos since late last year.

    I was expecting something like CPU overclocking within McAfee SecurityCenter. :D
