Is there more to these gadgets?

Is there more to these gadgets?

I live in NY. And I get to take NYC subway everyday. One thing that this affords me is being able to observe behaviors of melting pot of people. And one interesting that I noticed recently is that with multitude of advanced features and capabilities, most folks are using their iPhones and other smartphones, iPads and similar tech gadgets to engage in not so rich-media game of Solitaire.
This got me thinking. What other gadgets are being used, or under-used, to their full potential and designation. Below is a list that I have come up with. Let me know if you can think of any others:

- iPad - also used for just reading. No videos, gaming, or various applications (even if they are loaded).
- Newest TV sets - some of these come with apps, Internet connection, social media, and 3D capabilities. Though it is currently a tube for watching movies and shows on cable, with better graphics.
- Baking soda - there are multitude of uses and combination for this household staple and most have nothing to do with baking. (Home remedies) It also has many uses for when you are on the road. Baking soda can be used as toothpaste, mouthwash, cloth and shoes freshener and much more.
- Ginger - great for travel sickness and nausea
- Q-Tip style cotton swabs - These come in travel size packs and great to have along for multitude of uses.Though the product packaging expressly warns against using the swabs to clean the ear canal, yet most people buy them just for that purpose.
- Pack your shoes in a shower cap to keep the soles from touching your clothes while traveling
- Duck tape - it can be used to to take care of just about anything whether it is a bank robbery, things falling off, or have holes in them, and even someone that just talks to much :) Great to have on a trip also to mend things or use as label maker. Uses for Duct tape while traveling.
Outdated PC - our PC or laptop might not be the sharpest knife in the toolbox anymore, but it can still be a useful media storage device. Back up your pictures, music and videos from your travels to your old machine.
- Internet, which is not a gadget in itself, though is part of many, was originally started up by military as an intranet to create better and faster communication channels.
