7 Things To Do With Your Old iPod Mini

Goodbye iPod Mini. Hello iPod Nano! But wait…what are you going to do with that old Mini now that you've decided to fork out for an even cuter sliver of iPod goodness? Chill, dude, I'm here to help you out…

1. Use it as the world's most expensive paperweight.

2. Carry it in your top shirt pocket to deflect stray bullets.

3. Add it to your iPod family, you freak!

4. Stock it up with appropriately wistful tracks (Power of Goodbye, Bye Bye Baby…) and stick that sucker on eBay, tightwad.

5. Use it as a really opulent doorstop.

6. iPod dominoes, anyone?

7. Save yourself over $200. Just take your Mini and hit it with a sledgehammer until it's real flat. Then paint it black and color in the screen with some crayons. Hey presto…you don't need to fork out for a Nano after all!

    My silver iPod mini is going to last me a long time. I try not to
    mishandle it. I never leave it in the car to get frozen in the winter
    or cooked in the summer. When the battery dies, I will open it up,
    replace the battery, and continue to use it. It is small and
    lightweight and plays a long time despite having a hard drive. At 4GB
    it is large enough that I only get bored with the music selection once
    every three or four months, at which time I grab new music from my
    iTunes library. I am maximizing my music entertainment without having
    to shell out for a new iPod every year.
