When was the last time you used something the wrong way on purpose? I’ve mentioned this before as a bad thing, but sometimes it can be very useful.
How many of you out there have an iPod? Did you know the larger ones, like the 120gb Classic, can be used as a removable disk? Portable hard drives can be had for upwards of $100 or more, but if you’ve already got an iPod Classic, do you need to spend this money?
And for those of us with smaller music players, how much time do we spend annoyed we can’t take our entire collections with us? What about getting a netbook, rather than spending another three hundred dollars on a bigger player? Netbooks can be useful for other things, but many of them now have larger drives which would let us take out podcasts and movies and all of our music with us, without sacrificing the space.
A screwdriver might do a poor impersonation of a saw, but sometimes the right screwdriver can make a pretty good hammer, too.
