Apple has released iTunes 11.1.1, a small maintenance release that solves a few nagging problems that bedeviled some users. In addition to improving stability (a promise made with each new update), iTunes 11.1.1 fixes a bug that could cause movies with iTunes Extras to display incorrectly and a problem with deleted podcasts. It’s available as a direct download from Apple’s iTunes Web page, via Software Update in Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, or via the App Store app in 10.7 Lion or 10.8 Mountain Lion. (Free, 215 MB)
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.
