We can understand that McAfee chief executive Dave DeWalt has a lot on his mind. He just sold his company to Intel for US$7.68 billion, his press team is running wild naming Cameron Diaz the most dangerous celebrity in cyberspace, and the internet “threat landscape” is always growing.
Then there are the frequent television appearances on CNBC, CNN and Fox Business to worry about, a little bit of wrestling on the side and the family dinners to get home to after a long day jetsetting around the globe.
In this context, a tiny press conference on the other side of the world in sunny Sydney may not rank as the highest item of interest on DeWalt’s agenda. But perhaps it might be polite to pretend?
