Here's a thought. If you've got an iPod, and you fill it up with tracks at 99 cents from the iTunes store, or similar, you've got a music collection that has cost you thousands of dollars.

If your iPod gets stolen, the real value is in the data it stores, not the thing itself. Would an insurance company cover the thousands of dollars of MP3s on there, or would they only insure the chip they're stored on, and the hardware? Does an insurance company place the same premium on an MP3 that a record company does? I honestly don't know the answer to this, but I'd be interested to hear from anyone who does.
