Realistically, what can you do with a Zodiac II

This has been one of the things most on my mind for a long time. What I'd love to be able to do is something actually useful with not only this PDA but lots of them. But we'll start with the Zodiac II.

To begin with it's a great device, it really is, but it's built for gaming. That's what it was designed to do, and it's great for gaming. The only downside is that I'm not a gamer, so it's actually not that useful in its primary form.

However, one of the interesting by products of the Zodiac is that it is equipped with its own sound chip, so it can play GM sounds and also general OS5 sound too. So that in itself does yield some interesting possibilities, but it doesn't answer my main question.

What do I do with the Zodiac?

I don't have an answer. I'd love to, but I don't as yet. It would be great to find some way for this device to be a constructive and useful piece of technology for me. I'd rather it wasn't just a piece of my museum collection.

So, any suggestions would be very gratefully received!
