I've just been getting into PC gaming, trying out Steam here and there, and the worst aspect so far has been my laptop's fan. It must be seriously out f shape, because anytime I try to run a game, it wheezes like nobody's business. I guess you could say I'm just not a fan. Anyway, it seems my anguished screams of pain have not been unheard. General Electric has responded with their own design, and let me just say, it's cooler than anything else on the market. Extreme Tech Fun fact: this was originally designed for commercial jet engines before being shrunken down to size. No wonder it's about to take flight. While it's still a bit away, this is an encouraging development, allowing our technology to continue shrinking further and further. Plus, not having to worry about the whirring blades of fans piercing your gaming experience is a pretty awesome bonus, too. Traditional producers of fans (or fannies, as I like to call them, because butts) should feel the chill in the next couple of years or so.
