What to do with your old iPod mini!

So you finally made that bold move to buy a brand new iPod, be it the iPod touch (which is SOOO much fun), or the iPod Nano. You have an old iPod lying around the house, and you're not sure what to do with it. Well, here are some tips on what you can do with it (some of these might be a little impractical or silly, but hey, you never know!)


1.) Sell it on eBay --> Do the practical thing, and try to make some money off your old ipod. There is always someone that wants an iPod mini, even if it is the oldest version ever. Sell it on eBay, and earn some money back!

2.) Sell it to a friend --> If you know a friend that is looking for a cheap iPod to buy, why not offer them yours (for a reasonable price of course!)

3.) Most expensive Paperweight --> Well, if celebrities want to buy three million dollar houses for their dogs, or a pair of jeans with diamonds all over them, then why cant you have a paperweight that costs $$$?

4.) Feeling a little charitable? --> Do you know some family with children, and they don't have a lot of money to buy the latest gadgets? Why not give them your old iPod? It may not seem like much to you, but they will definitley accept it, and think that it is an amazing gift.

5.) Nothing --> Just leave it lying around your house, you may find some use for it later (even though you and I both know that you will probably loose it before you find this extremely important use, you just can't bare to part with the iPod because of all the good memories you have together :) )

6.) Its Clobbing Time --> Find a big hammer somewhere, and just clobber the thing. Sure its $$$ down the drain, but thats alright, you have a spiffy new iPod to take it's place right?

7.) Start a collection of iPod's --> Ok, you can't seem to part with your iPod, and you know that in a few years you will buy a new iPod, so why don't you start your very own iPod collection?

8.) Trade it in --> Some companies, like Argos in the United Kingdom, allow you to trade your old iPod in for a newer version. There are some rules that go with this, but you can find some way to get past them now, can't you?

9.) Be practical - dont buy a new one, and just "change" your old one --> Use a sledgehammer, or something rather heavy, and smash your iPod mini into an iPod Nano, paint it a different color, and then voila, you have an iPod Nano (even if it might not work to well...)
