Anybody know what hybrid bearings are? I picked up a fan at Microcenter
from an outfit called Silenx that has hybrid bearings. The fan is so
quiet I had to shine a flashlight in there to make sure it was turning.
It appears to be moving a pretty good volume of air, but it's the
quietest fan I've ever used.
One OS to rule them all, One OS to find them,
One OS to bring them all, and in the Darkness bind them,
In the land of Redmond, where the Sales Reps lie.
