That was a great game. Gotta love the clepto bat and the dragons that look like ducks. I need to dig out my old 2600 one day and hook it up again.
Dunno if you are serious, but you don't really need to trade the kid if you want to do some old school dragon dodging:
When I came to woot! tonight I thought this was the Archos 70 tablet. I just bought one of those, but there's a big difference between that one and this one.

One good benefit is if you use a media center, boxee, xmbc or other media serving device...
This can work as an RF remote. If you have outdoor speakers or whole home audio, there are several applications that allow you to send commands to the PC through the touchscreen.
That being said, with lack of market support you will have to hunt for them, but a resistive screen works great for that. (Worked well on the Universal Remote Control professional remotes from 2008 and back).
Not saying it's a stellar unit, but there is one use that is appropriate for this price point.
If it won't matter when I'm 90, it's no big deal.
