    Hi all!

    I have a 1st gen iPod Touch, which has a cracked screen (though it still works fine, no dead pixels or anything, just a big crack), so I'm guessing that chances of me getting more then 50 bucks for the thing are pretty slim. If I can do anything "cool" with it, rather then selling, I'd be interested.

    Things like:

    1) Act as an Airport Express (for AirPlay speaker?)

    2) Act as a web server (not really that useful as I have an actual web server at my house for web development stuff)

    3) Do something else cool/nerdy/somewhat useful or cool?

    Anyway, if nothing interesting comes up I might just attempt to fix the screen and give the thing to my little sister, or possibly just keep it so I can show future generations what my first Apple iPod Touch looked like :).

    Thanks in advance for any ideas!!

    Toronto, Duh!
    Maybe use it as a single-app display? For example, putting it on Epicurious and using it for the kitchen?

    Haha, just keep it to test future jailbreaks on it before you put it on your new one (im assuming your getting another ipod) that way its safe :)
