    Innovative uses for my I-300

    I must admit that I have found this site incredibly useful, and have loved participating. Although Brooks may object, why not have a little fun here? What are some of the best uses for yours?

    Here are a few of mine:

    1) Ear wax cleaner (with antenna, or stylus)
    2) Star-Trek "Fazer" for when my kids misbehave
    3) Pocket protector
    4) A great place to stick gum during lunch
    5) Facial grease collection device
    6) add yours here....

    I must agree its very helpful as a pocket flashlight.

    It also comes in handy to fool other drivers into thinking i have GPS in my car, as I use a cell phone holder to prop it nicely in the car, plus with my windows tinted somewhat, no details can be made out except for the glowing LCD screen! its fun.

    i agree wil crlipman, the i300 is a great flashlight. It's also something perfect to have while waiting for a movie to start.

    Hahaha! I use my I300 to program my VCR!!

    Yes, in the next month or so, I will be able to use my I300 to wirelessly program my VCR from anywhere in the world!

    Well, it's actually a MS UltimateTV. I just found out about this latest feature - which rocks, in and of itself. Added to an I300, it's gonna be killer!

    "Record from anywhere
    During his keynote address, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates used a Microsoft® Windows® Powered Pocket PC [...heh heh, or an I300
    perhaps?] and a wireless connection to illustrate how consumers
    will be able to set up TV recordings by using the UltimateTV Web
    site even when they aren't at home. The request is sent down via
    satellite so it is nearly instantaneous. UltimateTV subscribers
    would have the freedom to record a show they just found out about - even if they are stuck at the office, or a change in plans means they wouldn't be home in time."

    You've been able to do this for almost a year with ReplayTV... Go to MyReplayTV to see the login. It works, but the update is not immediate, since the ReplayTV box only calls in once a night. Thus, you can only update the recording schedule for shows on the next day (which limits its usefulness).

    Maybe the MS version has a quicker update?

    I know this thread is dead, but I was moved to post.

    Good call on the replay DANJB, I have one and didn't even think to use the I300 to log in.

    Back to the original thread:

    I think the best alternative use is as ammo in "cell phone whip out". You know what I'm talking about.....airport, dude in a nice suit, nice briefcase, whips out his tiny silver nokia and looks around to see who's looking......your turn, out with the I300 and watch his frown form.

    shallow, but darn it's fun
