My laptop had one of those "push a button and it opens a little, pull it the rest of the way" CD drives for a while. Then ... something happened ... (I tripped over the power cord and the laptop fell of the table) and the latch broke... so it wouldn't close. The drive still worked if you put a CD in it and held it shut, but if you let go it'd open again.
After a day or so the spring broke too, so the CD would stay in and it worked as normal, except if you tried to eject it, it'd just click a couple of times and then load the CD again... you had to physically grab the tray with your fingernails and pull it out. Eventually I made a little tab out of sticky tape, so I'd have something to grab onto.
Surprisingly, even after all of this, it still reads CDs fine, several years later.
While no one overhear you quickly tell me not cow cow.
but how about watch phone?
