Let's brainstorm some.
- drop trays on airplanes for surfing the web
- virtual billiards or pot the black, $2/game in pubs [damages could be great]
- trivia contests -- int'ly networked [I used to play pub trivia with 
some sort of handheld device years ago]

With the exception of billiards, I'm envisioning the personal sized 
device that doesn't require a physical keyboard.

sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
