Repurpose a Dead iPod

If you should find yourself the unfortunate owner of an utterly dead iPod that is out of warranty and beyond resurrection as that music player you once loved so much, there is still a variety of things you can do with it.

You’re past the denial stage where you sat rocking back and forth in the corner of your room for hours, cold and alone, clutching it close to your chest, repeatedly holding down special key combinations, hoping that suddenly your iPod would turn back on. You took it to a friend skilled in the art of soldering. He opened up your iPod, gently reconnected all the aged connections, and perhaps even replaced the FireWire port on your first-generation iPod, all to no avail. You tried new batteries and even an odd voodoo ritual that you discovered online. Nothing has worked. You’ve finally come to grips with the dreadful reality of it all: your iPod is dead.
