    I have had an ipod touch 1st gen since it came out. Recently I bought a 3GS and all is good. I've realized I dont use my iPT at all anymore though

    I'm not looking to sell it but I was wondering if anyone in the same boat has done anything creative with theirs.

    I was considering hanging it on my wall as an always on twitter feed or weather station but I am open to other creative ideas.

    So touch fans, what should I do with my ipod?

    Connect it to your TV and have it splitting the screen and have it as a mobile internet controller? Jailbreak it and as you said do the weather thing or have a bunch of cydgets and just hit the home button to scroll through them, nice little device it is.

    I like the idea with the TV, where can I get a cord to hook it up?

    music streaming would be an example
    or an internal file sharing portal (of course not for big files - but for example use it instead of an usb pen) there're browser based sharing solutions
