A few years ago I was looking into turning it into some single-purpose, simple device like a weather tracker for my folks (my dad would often waste 20 minutes watching the weather channel just waiting for the local weather to come up...telling him there's better, instantaneous sources fell on deaf ears).
Essentially there's nothing useful I could get out of device because (and this is apparently a common complaint) its overly aggressive power-saving "feature" is constantly trying to turn off the display after some ridiculously small amount of time, and there's no option for "never", even when plugged in.
