Yelling at your computer actually slows it down

If your frustrated that spreadsheet is taking forever to open or you’re totally getting pwned in Counter Strike don’t yell at your computer because it will actually slow down further according to an experiment performed by Sun’s Fishworks group. This article found via Engadget suggests that the vibration of loud noise negatively affect the performance of the hard disks by increasing latency. So the next time you feel like screaming at your computer,  yell at your cat instead. I wonder what the effects of t-bagging your PC are?
