What can a company feasibly do with 500 million people's contacts etc (if they really were data mining it)? I would guess nothing.

I think people are being a bit naive tbh. People have this hippy idea that Facebook is their bit of software they get to use for free. And it's not actually owned by a huge company that makes it's business seeling information on it's users. If you use FB you are the product, not the customer.

It is true that you are the product, but there is also the typical mindset that if it is a large company it is evil, that is pervasive in the modern world.

To me the big problem in the world is not the big companies doing nothing with your data, save for selling you an advert, it is these guys:

who will happily rinse out your bank account etc for fun or to prove a point that they are l33t.

I'm not sure what his problem is then; he doesn't think immigration should be easy, so surely he should applaud the Border Agency for making it hard for his wife to enter the country: "Well done them, they're doing a great job".

Err, ok. I wouldn't vote for Labour because they allowed the chinless wonder to be the leader; if that isn't a damning indictment on the party, I don't know what is. His brother was clearly the better choice, but for some reason didn't get the job.

I haven't seen these guys but saw a brief advert for them the other day. Wiki currently says

Quote
The couple regularly appear on ITV's This Morning hosting a segment about anxiety issues and phobias.
 
In early 2014, it was announced that the couple would host their own daytime television show called The Speakmans.[1][2] The show aired for 20 episodes, beginning on 14 July 2014.[3]
 
The Speakmans are regular columnists in 'Love It Magazine'. Although it really looks like Nik wears some form of comedy wig it's actually just very odd regular hair.

I can't see that lasting for long, so I've quoted for posterity.

It might be that the fan needs a clean out, but iMacs are not exactly easy to open up and you have to be careful about static discharge when vacuuming out the dust. It might be resolved by sticking the vacuum nozel up to the fan slots.

+I suggest shutting down and vacuuming out the bottom grill work and small intake port under the stand on a regular bases. Dust build up will vary depending on the environment, if a small amount of dust is noticed after a couple of months then perhaps a quarterly vacuuming is in order.+

+My Intel iMac will be 5 years this next January and I have faithfully vacuumed out the air intakes every few months sense the day it was new. After 3 years of running, in Jan of 09 I opened her up to upgrade the Hard Drive and there was almost no dust build up on the fan blades or anywhere inside of the iMac.+

+Caution: do not disturb the dust with the iMac on (fans running) or blow with compressed air, that will do nothing except to blow what little dust is collected on the air intakes deeper into the iMac.+

Tantra are only dubious as they are the kind to install bootleg software, but otherwise they may be fine for work. I'd do a bit of research on them to see wht the net says.

You could have a look at ifixit for your iMac model and see if you dare open up the machine yourself, but I suspect it is a horribly cramped space inside and has too many fiddly bits or requirements for special screwdrivers.

Flash will often make the fans rev up, because it is a horrendous piece of software and a CPU hog.

There are apps and widgets that can show internal temperatures if you think heat is the issue.
