    I know a lot of you aren't using your PlayBook's like they were originally fully intended ( do to Update limitations), so the question is what are you using it for?
    Maybe hooked up to a nice Stereo system, an Alarm clock or just something crazy, hey as long as it can do one thing good then it's all good (:

    Just post pictures below of whatever it is you use it for.

    I have a SqueezeBox Player software on my PlayBook, with its great front-facing speakers, you can get some pretty good audio out of it.

    These are my main uses but my Playbook is still my only Tablet and I don't plan on replacing it anytime soon.

    Facebook, email, amazon, ebay, internet banking, pics, films, free movies on putlocker hooked up to my tv, youtube. Basically everything I always used it for. Still have no wish to get a different tablet. Is there something I'm missing??

    I have just started using my playbook at work daily. Bridged to my passport so I can message without messing up the pkb on my passport with my greasy mechanic fingers. Many of my clients prefer text notifications so that arrangement works out well. Also using it to order parts online from napa.

    I use it regularly to record sermons at church and often video.

    I think the video from it is competitive with that taken by my iPad and, thanks to its file system, MUCH easier to get a file off of the thing and post in the cloud for people!

    I've dusted off one of my PBs to test as a dashboard for my home automation system. If it works as hoped I plan to mount it behind a two-way mirror to make a smart mirror:

    At work my main desk faces the door, but my computer is on a second desk behind me.I use my playbook as a mirror on my second desk so that I can see who comes into my office, and who walks by when I have the door open when I have my back to the door.

    I have it on the charging stand next to my bed. Is a fantastic alarm clock. That's its primary and full time job. I haven't restarted or turned off the Playbook in many months. It's secondary job is for Web searches and as a music player. It is still fast.
