How Loud Are Your Mac's Fans?

When they get hot, Macs turn on various internal fans to keep components cool. The noise can be annoying, but just how loud is it? If you have an iOS device with a built-in microphone, you can download one of many free sound meter apps (search on decibel in the App Store) and see if you're subjecting your ears to a truly unreasonable noise level.

 
 

TidBITS Staff Caught on Video at Macworld Expo

Send Article to a Friend

Increasingly, even if you can't make it to Macworld Expo, you can see some of what you missed via online video produced by the likes of Macworld and MacVoices TV. We found ourselves in a number of productions, and, honestly, they weren't all that different from the kinds of conversations we had with lots of people at the show. So tune in for a bit of that Macworld Expo experience without leaving your desk, but keep in mind that these videos were possible only because there was a Macworld Expo at which we could all come together in person.

  • TidBITS on MacVoices TV: At the end of the first day, MacVoices TV host Chuck Joiner corralled Adam, Tonya, and Joe to talk about the most interesting products we'd seen on the show floor. And yes, it was difficult to stand still after a hard day on the floor.
  • MacJury on MacVoices TV: On the second day of the show, Tonya participated in a MacJury panel discussion, along with Ted Landau, Jeff Gamet, and Chuck La Tournous, to discuss what was different and interesting about this Macworld Expo, and to predict what will be special about Macworld Expo 2011.
  • Macworld 2010: TidBITS at Expo: In this video, shot on the final day of the show, Macworld's Chris Breen interviewed Adam and Tonya about the state of electronic publishing, where Take Control came from, and what the iPad means to the publishing industry. Now we just have to convince Chris to come write Take Control books for us!
