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.

 
 

StyleWriter II driver

StyleWriter II driver -- Dieder Bylsma wrote to tell us that he tried the head cleaning option from the StyleWriter II driver on his StyleWriter I, and although the printer itself seems OK, the process ruined the ink cartridge. This is probably why Apple isn't making the new StyleWriter II driver readily available and doesn't recommend that you use it with the StyleWriter I.
