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.

"Take Control of Customizing Panther" in Japanese -- Our industrious Japanese translators have done it again! We're pleased to announce the release of the Japanese translation of Matt Neuburg's "Take Control of Customizing Panther," which is now available for $7.50. We're once again offering this version free to Japanese speakers who have already purchased the English version of Matt's ebook. To download your copy, click the Check for Updates button on the first page of "Take Control of Customizing Panther" and click the download link in the Web page that appears. The free download link will work through 01-Jun-04. If you don't have the current 1.2 version of "Take Control of Customizing Panther," your copy won't have the Check for Updates button, so you'll need to upgrade to 1.2 with the instructions we sent on 10-Apr-04. If you have trouble, send email to Tonya at <tc-comments@tidbits.com>. [ACE]
