NO! WAIT! Install Linux on it! Then you can have a paperweight that runs Linux! I mean, they probably have Linux for every single device developed, plus hamsters (highly unstable and irritable), right?

Would they actually have Linux for palms?

If it has an IR port on it, you can use it as a remote for anything that uses an IR remote. Just download the software.

They also have one someplace for controlling Lego RCXs! Ah! I remember good times... The fun... The thrills... The mayhem (e.g. running a FLL robot off a table)
