    Hi guys,

    These days my MBA is doing weird things.

    The other day the fan was spinning like crazy and the area on the left hinge was so hot I could have cooked an egg. I didn't really bother at first cause I was brosing youtube, and thought that maybe was because of the videos, but then I stopped watching video and this thing was persisting.
    I checked the activity monitor and iTunes was using the whole CPU, however I wasn't doing anything with it.
    I quit the program, and everything went normal.

    Now happend the same I had around 56% usage fan rpm over the 4000 and the CPU at 77º. Quitted iTunes and everything was the same. Checked the activity monitor and I had Quick Note - an text editor app downloaded from the app store - that had is process using way too much CPU. Quitted and everything went normal.

    Anyone had similar problems? Am I getting worried for nothing?

    PS: Quick Note hits 100% CPU usage as soon I open it. Bad app programming?
