    Firing it up. I got the 64gb version. Thinking bout getting rid of it
    At this point not sure you can get rid of it... other than to a recycler.


    First thing I'd do before giving or selling a device would be to wipe it. But with activation down that means it's a paper weight.

    Same here! I'm also finding that Youtube works a lot better than it used to in Origami browser. Seems like the mobile site was redesigned to be more responsive. PB still a champ in these areas, and the speakers are incredible. (As much as I like our Kindle Fire, any time I use it I'm depressed by the sound.)
    I tinkered with one of mine last couple of days. Shrank the OS... I guess it's sorta faster?! Anyways... how do you watch the mobile version of YouTube? Also, I hate how the full version site doesn't allow you to watch full screen videos. UGH.

    I think I can use it for other stuff... but never do. What I do use it for is a clock using Flipclock app.

    Every once in a while I end up buying a few more playboks when I get them cheap on ebay. After reading some of the recent posts on this forum I decided I should probably try and add as many apps from BB World as I can. I've been trying out some of the games and really enjoying the experience. For some things including viewing my digital photos the playbook just is more enjoyable to use than other cheap tablets I have. I've started having one again in my work bag.

    I still take it with me on trips. Great music player, excellent for downloaded videos and even Stereotube works great for Youtube. Email works just fine.

    Only the browser is a piece of junk, but since the PlayBook has never been a phone, I have one with me for web use anyways

    Nice to see there are still people here. Is there any app that will just let it act like an extra screen? preferably in Linux.
    Is there anyone we can threaten the life of, to unlock the bootloaber and let use this device?

    I like mine and won't part with it. But I don't love it enough to acquire a new one! It's probably worth about $5 to me. Send it over if you want :-).

    ...if you can get your mitts on either the dock with the magnetic charger points or the separate magnetic charger (both are high amp/speed) and let it sit on that charger for a bit it will eventually come back...forgot that I had one and was given another, both hadn't been used in years...neither would charge via the USB...but both are now operational after a good charge on the dock....I also have the separate high speed/amp magnetic charger as well that I have to use on my daughter's PlayBook as the USB is broken...(have some new ports, just have to fix it).

    If you have it, and hate to see it go to waste... yes there are a few uses that it can be put too. But I agree, buying one at this point isn't worth it at all.

    Rediscovered my old Playbook and am using it regularly. Mostly as a video player (wifi copy of files from server) and as a Squeezebox front end via Music2touch app. Of course just for Youtube audio it is very good. Am just having issues with using it for reading because of an annoying intermittent flicker. No disappointment. Only pleasant surprises...

    I would love to, but it was in my backpack and it locked out as the password got entered too many times incorrectly. I tried to reset it to factory settings but all the icons are gone now except 2 of them. One is the browser and the other is the setup tool.

    I taught about resetting mine up before the supposed end of BBW... just wasn't worth the time.

    I only disappoint about the fact it hasn't got any USB OTG and since DropBox app stoped working I don't know how to copy my files from the pc to my playbook and I need to connect it by wire.

    Still use mine almost daily. I don't have a remote for my roku so I use the clicker app to control my roku, and it's also great for general Web browsing, watching youtube, and reading reddit.
