Tip of the week...How to put your old tech devices to fresh use

PalmPilots, Old laptops, and more

PalmPilots. These were once the best-selling handheld computers in America—before smartphones made them obsolete. Put one on the kitchen counter, or even Velcro it to the fridge, and it can act as a digital grocery list and recipe library.

Sony PlayStations. Among audiophiles, the original PlayStation game console is “known for being one of the best-sounding CD players out there.” Maybe it’s time you revisited your 1990s music collection.

iPods. “It’s easy to forget” that iPods typically store five times more music than an iPhone, so keep one in your car, patched to the stereo: It beats having to hook up your phone before every trip.

Old laptops. Retired laptops make great portable movie players. Screen size is almost unbeatable, and their “tank-like build” makes them ideal for road trips.
