Intel Capital is going all over the map both literally and in terms of the types of sites it’s investing in. Three recent ones are all based in India. They include:, an online travel portal,, a social networking Web site, and Emnet Samsara Media Pvt. Ltd., an advertising company, according to VentureWire.

Intel Capital is the investment wing of computer chip maker Intel Corp. The company apparently has a $250 million Intel Capital India Technology fund which this is a part of.

The investment in the three totals $17 million.
