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.

 
 

Thirteenth Annual Macworld SF Netters Dinner

Send Article to a Friend

Thirteenth Annual Macworld SF Netters Dinner -- Mark your calendars if you're going to Macworld Expo in San Francisco this week. The tireless Jon Pugh is organizing the 13th Annual Netters Dinner in the traditional style, which means it will be held at the Hunan on Sansome and Broadway on Thursday, 07-Jan-99. The cost is $17, payable only through a Kagi-based signup form linked on Jon's Netters Dinner Web page. Jon plans to attend this year to perform the ritual domain survey, so we'll all look (and listen) for him starting at 6:00 PM at the top of the escalators inside Moscone on the south side of Howard Street. After everyone has gathered, we'll make the traditional walk to the Hunan en masse. See you there! [ACE]
