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.

AppleShare Upgrades

Send Article to a Friend

AppleShare Upgrades -- It seems that Apple really wants everyone to upgrade to AppleShare 3.0 and has extended the upgrade program to 31-Jul-92. Apple claims they mean it this time, so this may well be your last chance to upgrade at a discount. It appears that you'll need an upgrade coupon, which is available on AppleLink in the AppleLink -> Apple Sales & Mktg -> Apple Programs -> AppleShare Server 3.0 Upgrade folder. I suspect your dealer will have coupons or be able to get one for you.

If you bought AppleShare File Server 2.0 between 15-Oct-91 and 31-Dec-91, your original, dated, itemized sales invoice and original Server Installer disk will get you a free upgrade. If you purchased only the AppleShare File Server 2.0 before 15-Oct-91, your original Server Installer disk and $299 will get you an upgrade. For those who purchased both the AppleShare File Server 2.0 and the AppleShare Print Server 2.0 before 15-Oct-91, you can send in your original File Server Installer disk and your original Print Server Installer disk and $199, and Apple will give you an upgrade. If you're still confused, talk to your dealer. Each of the upgrades carries with it a $7 shipping and handling fee, making even the free upgrade not so free. Send all those upgrade coupons to:

AppleShare Server 3.0 Upgrade
