Question [Q] Repurposing an old Treo 750

I have an old Treo 750 that I no longer use as a phone. I would like to find cool new uses for it other than just an mp3 player or standard PDA functions. I've read suggestions like making it a universal remote, a straight alarm clock, stuff like that, but I think there are probably better ideas than that. It's not unlocked (yet), and I haven't updated it since 2009.

It's running WM6.

Treo750-1.13-ATT
Firmware - 1.54.27.00


Any suggestions would be appreciated.

6.5 ROM, instructions page 10! Follow this instructions to update to the rom 27. you must flash the 27 before you flash any custom, like hermman.
