I also believe someone made an ashtray out of one too.

Try and sell it, someone might want it.

Drill a hole through the top get a gold or silver chain and you got some bling.

I wanted to set up a large (55+ gallon) salt water tank and fill it with just obsolete electronics. Walkmen, cell phones, calculators, answering machines, car stereos, probably even a few small TVs and A/V component pieces. Sort of a corroding coral reef of technology lost to the ages.

That is a very interesting idea. From what I've pictured in my head, it would look pretty cool!

I am in the same boat as you. My 4G hard drive just gave up on me. Are there any reputable repair sites out there?

I made my old 30GB video in to an ash tray works great. Apart from that I don't know what you could do with it.
