What to do with old electronics?

  1. esbity African Astronaut
    I have a bunch of smart phones(mostly less than $200 at the time I bought) and other strang devices like Internet dongles and an expensive weather board I uh found. These collect dust but could be used for something.

    Should I start hiding the phones in hotel rooms connected to the WIFI so that they are little servers I can use?

    I think that would be more valuable to me that selling.

    What is your suggestion?

    Wifi cameras, proxies, mobile proxies, detonators, and yes to the hotel room thing. Hide them on buses with free wifi, also.

    EDIT: ......

    maybe use them as transceivers for something like CreepyDOL

    EDIT2:....... depending on how many you've got, use them to relay messages around a city, and create a network for tracking things..... lost pets, vehicles, etc. I had this idea, if a pet wearing a transceiver collar, moves out of proximity of the owner's home, burst transmission is activated, with low power level to save space/weight/battery life, so the collar isn't very bulky or heavy and much cheaper than GPS collars. If you spaced the phones the right distance, as long as the target (lost pet) doesn't leave the city, it's within range of one of your phones, which can relay or send information back to your computer or main smartphone to tell you where it can be located.

    glue them together so you have a doublesided phone

    I think we should throw them in the ocean so that future humans that evolve from tadpoles can have phones.

    Extract the gold from them.

    You could use some of them as IPcams for home securitt! They can prevent packs of niggers from raping your whore wife.

    Yes, you can also use it to guard your nonexistent wife.

    youll get more gold by panning the sewers than from a phone.

    I'm sure you've done an empirical comparison.

    Not if you have thousands of them.

    no, not really. this isnt the 80s or 90s where ICs are the size of a casino chip. modern day ICs are just a few nanometers thin and the amount of golds used is almost non-existence.

    surprisingly, yes.
