Hard drive teardown

At the time when the old hard drive begins to leave its place to the SSD, it is always good to know how things work.

didn't tell that if you open a hard disk like this there is 99.99% chance that it will get many bad sectors :(|)

#6 when you open a HDD it's usually already dead so worries there ;)

Imagine if Nikola Tesla was not born and there was no such thing as AC electricity

#8 I'm sure someone would have worked it out by now ;)

But yes. A world without electricity?

Candlelight, live acoustic guitar music and fresh non-microwaved meals by a roaring fire.

Sounds ok to me :P

Our lifestandard without electricity would go down by miles.
Most of us. Yes even in the first world countries would starve to death.
I don't think money will be important in the end. Just weapons and manpower.
The most cruel will rule.

We cannot produce as much food as we do now without electics.
Maybe 10-15% of what we produce now. Life acoustic guitar??? the only guitar you'll be using is to smash some1s skull in for a scrap of food. Or maybe even to eat the person in question.

When you are hungry you will eat anything even tree bark and other people.
Concentration camps in North Korea are a great example of that. A country with hardly any electricity.

#11 Thanks for that. I really needed my eyes opening following my ignorant post earlier.

I gave it a lot of thought and realised the most important thing the world would miss without electricity (this sent shivers down my body)...

At the end of the arm lies the most critical component, the head. Takes a geek to find the sexual in this -.-

Ran into a guy back in the late 80's or early 90's in my shop. He ordered a HDD and said "40mb haha we will never ever use that much!". Time do pass...

Would like to see a similar video about the SSD we have today.

#8 The first recorded practical use of A/C predates the birth of Nikola Tesla. He made advancements, but he did not invent it, nor did he do anything that was outside the ability of others at the time.

Awesome explanation

#15 is basically right, what tesla did invent were AC motors and proper usages of magnetic fields in those.

he was genius though and had many many extraordinary abilities, for example drawing entire (precise) blueprints in his head.
