I just updated my network bridge from a perfectly good SmartHub to the newer Access.
Is there any good use for the old retired SmartHub (Acu-Link) after updating to the Access? 
Or does it go in the box with all my other obsolete electronics?

Sell it on Ebay, they average around 25 bucks.  Some people evidently want it for something or acuparse.

Be careful if you give/sell it to someone.  If your wunderground credentials aren't completely removed, it could end up being a "zombie" on the internet reporting bad data to your station ID.

Yes, do what others are doing.  Ripping people off (like Acurite is) and selling them on EBAY and the poor suckers don't know they are basically worthless who buy them.

The MICRF211 433MHz receiver module inside it quite good.  I could see buying a few just to get those.

Exactly, what may appear as junk to some are valuable to others.
