Donate them to a good cause, recycle them… What do you do with your old computers and phones?

My old computers have mainly cascaded down the family, before eventually leaving the family via a gift, or breaking and heading to the recycling centre. So, my last laptop is now with my mother-in-law, the iMac before last is at my brother's place in France. And my brother-in-law is using my very first iBook still.

The only computer I've "used to death" was my iMac G4, which finally died after 6 years of use. I'm typing this on its replacement.

My old phones have traditionally gone to recycling, but my last iPhone went to a member of my extended family.
