Default Uses for old tablet or phone

Anyone get a new phone or tablet for Christmas? Here are some uses for your old one. I especially like the one about using an old one for a security monitor. I guess you could watch a cnc run while sitting in the bathroom:

Thanks Jim. I have an iPad that I am not using. I will check out some of those things. The monitor sounds good. I like to sit in my office while the CNC is cutting away. I can hear it, just can't see it!

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

I’d like to see a tablet mounted to the top of a router . Get one of those cheap little cameras that connect to the port aimed at the middle of the base , and see if helps these guys that free hand there Signs .
If I didn’t give away my iPad mini , I’d try it myself .

LOVE the home security idea!!! Took my 8" that has a cracked screen and made it the security camera so we can watch Sunny n' Teddy. We used to have two dogs - now they're Partners In Crime, one covering the other while things come up missing, and other things get strewed around the house while we're gone... Now the dog who does the crime can do the time
