Control that whiny Acer Aspire One fan with freeware

Picture3I’m in a freeware mode today, so bear with me. After finding a free utility to put the unread e-mail count in my Mac menu bar, I see that Mobility Site is sharing software specific to the Acer Aspire One I owned for two weeks. Although the fan noise didn’t bother me, others in my house kept asking me what that annoying whine was. To be honest, some of the whining was me but since my family is used to that noise, we all concluded it was the AAO’s fan.Enter the aptly-named Acer Aspire One Fan Control application that supports both Windows XP and Vista on the Aspire One. There’s not much info other than the picture and since I returned my Acer, I can’t tell you much more. However, I can put two and two together to safely assume that the app lets you configure when the fan kicks on or off based on the internal device temperature. Yup, I’m a real rocket scientist. ;)
