Uhuu, go Apple, good job on pateting things people on SPCR have been doing for the last couple of years i.e. making their computers quiet.
Controlling your computers noise level? I`ve been doing that with my PWM controlled fans for the last 2 years and deciding how loud or silent my PC can be, in any enviroment i should put it in. Listening to a heavy-metal song or playing games? Crank up the fans via Speedfan. Sleeping? Slow the fans down via Speedfan. Or let Speed Fan control them automatically with various profiles. Or let the BIOS do it.
Good job Apple, innovating things that have existed for years.
Of course, it will come with the next generation of Macs that will feature the brand spakin` new Intel&Nvidia CPUs and GPUs that have already been on PCs for months and months, at triple the price for the same hardware, and the most innovative OS on the planet, that gets rid of those awful blue screens and replaces them with kernel panics.
