Reviving My Old Gadgets
August 13, 2013 1 Comment
After summer cleaning my house, I found a few gems that I used to love when I was about as young as a tadpole.
Well, not really.
I found my old Canon PowerShot A400 camera that only had 3.2 megapixels! It’s a dinosaur, The last time I used it was in our 2013 Vacation Bible School, but the last last time I used it was 3 years back, before I had my Nikon CoolPix camera. Anyways, long story short, I found this old bulk of junk (it still works fine, except for the clock battery) and I plan to use it as a backup camera when all else fails.
Also, I found my old iPod 5th Generation (yes, I have one for music purposes only). The only reason I bought that was for the high quality camera and basic music listening. Everything else was a hassle. iTunes is bloated and a crazy source hog and well, it’s Apple. Enough said.
I plan to revive these two gadgets. The iPod Nano is still useful for playing music. Ever since I got my phone, that’s what I’ve been using as an MP3 player. The bad thing about it is that it dies out easily because we use it as an MP3 player for long trips. That will most likely be the use for this: a car ride MP3 player!
Sometimes, the oldest of things can still give out a little juice. Finding ways to reuse them is a great thing, because not only does it help the environment, it also helps us realize that everything is useful, in one way or another.
