Which is weird, because iirc HDDs already have temperature sensors.

Yes: Isn't it funny how the quesstionable dealings of other companies are now ignored whilst Apple is the new devil that keyboard warriors love to hate?

You only need one optical drive in the house. From that one, move them to hard drives or usb flash sticks.
