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.

I think this is a glaring oversight in the Apple product lineup, but I seem to be the only one who thinks so. My home wifi network uses an Airport Express and I carry another when on the road. But without a Mac (or PC), there is no way to configure the Express. They can't be configured from a browser, like most routers, so users are completely stuck.
If you need to change the Express configuration on the road, you are out of luck. Unless you can borrow a PC. And have a thick skin while your friends laugh that one Apple device cannot be configured to talk to another Apple device without the help of a PC. Embarrassing.
Apple has created the odd app for mildly useful functions before. How about an app for this absolutely essential function?
