Thread: Busted up iPhone...some possible uses?

    Default Busted up iPhone...some possible uses?
    First off hello message board as this is my first post. I'm looking for some ideas for my busted up 3g that sadly was dropped onto the pavement then accidently stepped on. Needless to say the screen is destroyed but the phone still works. I have since(about 15 minutes after that happened) upgraded to a 3GS. Currently I'm looking for some ideas for possible uses for the old 3G Im thinking a network appliance of sorts. It could easily be administered through ssh or vnc. I'm aware that it can be used for anything from a DNS server to a file server to a web server. Curiously could it be used to stream video, perhaps a jpeg stream? I'm not sure yet but if anyone has any creative suggestions they would be much appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Mike
