The US has been pretty hot the last couple of weeks, and it shows in a trio of Mac articles that appeared recently with similar themes (and which were written independently of each other):
- My latest Seattle Times Practical Mac column, Keep your Mac cool this summer, talks about keeping your laptop cool, as well as other temperature related items.
- In my column, I mention that I received a $48 Levenger Laplander lapdesk as a gift, and use it when I’m working on my PowerBook on the couch. In Mac Gems: Cheap laptop desk, Dan Frakes points out how you can make something similar for about $10.
- And in this week’s issue of TidBITS, Adam Engst channels his inner “private i” to relate the tale of The Mystery of the Burnt Thighs, and talks about some troubleshooting solutions for keeping MacBooks cool(er).
