Give Your Old Tablet A New Lease On Life

"Tablets of both the Android and iPad variety have been lauded for their portability and greatness as often as they've been berated for their uselessness. Regardless, lots of people have them, and lots of people upgrade. We've talked before about using your iPad as a creative tool, but what about the rest of us? If you don't want to sell that tablet you might as well find a creative use for it."

The life cycle of tech is getting shorter and shorter. Us enthusiasts are trading what we have for the newest and greatest almost on an annual basis if not sooner. Take tablets for an example. I'm willing to bet most of us have already upgraded once. So, what do you do with your old tablet once you've gotten the new one?

LifeHacker has compiled a list of ways to give your tablet a new lease on life. Some of the more intriguing uses include dedicated e-reader or magazine reader, portable media center and home automation remote. LifeHacker's list is by no means exhaustive so do you have any good tips on re-purposing an old tablet?

"The life of a tech junkie is expensive, but you don't always need to spend tons of money to get tons of features. Here are some of our favorite ways to add extra features to your tech without paying an arm and a leg."

LifeHacker has compiled a list of ways to re-purpose or upgrade your old equipment in order to eek out a little more serviceable life. It ranges from simple things such as modifying a simple pen cartridge to installing new firmware/software into a point and shoot camera. If you have old tech and feel bad about having it sit in a drawer collecting dust, take a look at the videos. Maybe you can bring some of them back to life.
