Non-Obvious Things You Can Do With Your IPod

I was just wondering if people could make a list of the "non-obvious" things you can do with your IPod. Everyone knows that you can have songs, podcasts, audiobooks, etc. Things like ipodsubwaymaps.com is unique, in that someone thought of a non-obvious way to use your ipod. Anyone have any things you know you can do with your IPod?

That is such a neat idea... Use pictures of maps and put them on the iPod. Simple but neat

Nice tips Nickster. Those are the exact sort of "non-obvious" things that I'm sure many of us IPod users are curious about.
