    So I have an old iPod Touch 2 that I don't use anymore. What should I do with it?

    Get a docking station for it and leave it in your Kitchen, living room etc. Or keep it in your car.

    I have an old gen1 and I use it with a Yamaha music player in the dinning room. It's especially cool for that as the gen1 had the Wolfson audio chip which most agree is the superior chip for music in iPods.
    You can also use yours for a player in the car if so equipped and you won't have to worry so much if it gets stolen. I'd never sell mine, it's still great.

    Me too! I use it as a paper weight; it's very effective and keeps the paper from flying off the table at the slightest breeze.

    Seriously though, I leave it on my old iHome and play music with it when I feel like it.

    Or you can sell it on ebay for ~$50, depending on its condition.

    Sell it, or give it to a friend or relative, or keep it as a backup for when your current device is broken, lost or stolen.

    Why not give it to a family member or friend who would love to use it, thats what I do with most of my old gear, especially since not everyone spoils themselves, it'd be a fun gift to give!

    I gave mine to my wife, when I got my iPad. She listens to audio books on it while at home or on the road.

    download air speaker, then you can wirelessly stream music to it. (Like an airport express)

    I made a thread like this before and lots of people offered great suggestions. I still ended up boxing my iTouch 2 though. I’m “using” my iTouch 4. I used quotes because only use it on that rare moment when I have nothing to do at the gym but cardio due to massive soreness all over my body from weight lifting. At that point I use it for watching video as I run on the treadmill.

    Keep it for 50 years and by then it may be worth a small fortune....

    If you were an attractive woman, you could chuck it at a random stranger and yell, "You've been 'Touched by an Angel'!"

    Have someone record it, and you could be an internet meme.

    Older hardware is great for use in your car, I have a 60Gb iPod photo in one car and an 8Gb Nano in my other car = they get broken into and stolen its not my newest toy being taken...

    I also have given older hardware to family and friends for their younger childern when I've had the urge to upgrade unnecessarily :D
