Situation: Wife got a new phone. It's actually more like a big-screen TV that somehow fits in your pocket. But her old phone was an eyePhone 4 non-s 16GB, with a pretty old iOS version--it is now mine.

I never was a huge iPhone fan, but since I have it I figure I might as well try to put it to good use. The google searching I did last night (can't remember the exact search query) somehow came up with the same old stuff over and over. Surprising how many links there were to the same "11 uses" for an old iPhone. Half of them were very unimaginitive ideas, like "Sell it" or "Give it away" or "use it as a dedicated audio player, video player, or e-reader."

Some of the better ones I found were using it as a remote control, or target practice.

So I figured I'd ask the good folks here since so many in the homebrewing community are very innovative. I'm a techy-nerd type. So weird stuff tends to be interesting to me.

Ideas?

Coaster for your beer glass. Don't want any nasty moisture rings on your furniture.

Sight in a nice rifle with it.
See how many times you can get it to skip on a calm pond.
Sharpen the edges and use it to fight off ninja's.
Pack it with tannerite, or put it into a container of tannerite and make it go BOOM! Record the sound and use that as your ring-tone for people who you know have eyephones...

Even with cellular turned off, there are almost unlimited functions it could perform.

It's a very good music player. At a minimum, use it as an Ipod.

It has a decent camera and video. Stick it in the car for impromptu picture taking.
