An enthusiast created a board that mimics the sounds of an old hard drive

Modern SSDs boast speed, quiet operation, and other benefits. However, they also have a minus, rather subjective. Unlike hard drives, they don’t have mechanical parts, which means you can’t tell by ear whether a disk is being read or written. But enthusiast Matthias Werner solved this problem.

An enthusiast created a board that mimics the sounds of an old hard drive

He introduced a device called the HDD Clicker, which generates a sound very similar to the sound that disk heads make when they are moved. The corresponding sounds are played when reading or writing information. Besides purely nostalgic feelings, it can be useful. Such a board allows you to determine the activity of the SSD by ear.

Structurally, the board looks simple, and the author gave all the instructions to assemble it yourself. Or in the future you can order a ready-made solution for 25 euros.

The controller is used to detect the activity of the drive, and the sound is played through the speaker. Note that this solution is only suitable for PCs, it simply does not have a place in laptops.

The creators of Nothing Phone 1 want to compete with

The company Nothing, which released a smartphone with a transparent back panel Nothing Phone (1), plans to soon enter the US market and compete with Apple there.

Carl Pei, the co-founder of Chinese mobile phone maker OnePlus, is in talks with US carriers to launch a new smartphone in the US, Pei revealed in an interview with CNBC without naming any carrier. So far, the company has only released its smartphone in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, but not in the US or Canada.

The reason we didn’t launch in the US is because you need more tech support to support all carriers and their unique customizations they need to do on top of Android. We felt we weren’t ready before. We are currently in talks with some carriers in the US about a possible launch of a future product there.

However, a third of sales of its Nothing Ear (1) fully wireless headphones are currently in the US.

This is definitely a market that already has a lot of interest in our products. And if we launch our smartphones there, I’m sure we can achieve significant growth.

Carl Pei

The company expects its revenue to grow more than tenfold in 2022, from about $20 million in 2021 to about $250 million. The company plans to become profitable in 2024.
