    Everytime I launch and use Apple News+, my MB Air (mid 2012) heats up like a blowtorch. Sometimes I can see it is maxing out the CPU, but other times CPU usage is moderate, and my Air stills runs hot with the fans cranking at 5-6k rpm. It's bad enough that I'm thinking about dumping my AN+ subscription. Anyone else have this problem?

    Reading the news makes me run hot too

    Apple news doesn’t do this on any of my macs. Even older ones. Do you have a bunch of background processes going on?

    I have a similar issue with Yahoo in Safari on my 2011 MacBook Pro. After a short time the fan revs up noticeably. Nothing else running at the time.

    It happens to me, too. The News app is just trash. It's all fun and games until something like marzipan Messages causes this to happen.
