As I was installing new software onto my PC today, I was thinking about the design of a CD drive. Just about every CD drive today has a tray that will close if you give it a little push. Who was the engineer behind that? Why did they add that feature?
That idea, to allow the tray to close if pushed, was a great design choice. I wonder what things would be like if that person designed a few other things. I wonder if their superiors knew that was on the engineering todo list?
Here is to that unsung engineer who made the not-so super important CD-ROM drive do something kind of intelligent.
