that threaten your iPod. From losing it by accident, theft, device breakdown, to accidental damage, you
can lose the enjoyment and benefits your iPod provides in a wide variety of ways. However, picking

People use their iPods in a wide variety of ways. While many use it primarily for entertainment, others

If you have a business or income generating use for your device, you should opt for coverage that

against. Compare based on features instead of labelling. Differing insurance companies label the same
coverage differently. They also sometimes label differing coverage items with the same name. Focus
on features and bottom-line effect instead of how they label the coverage. This is the best way you can
be sure you are comparing iPod insurance policies properly.
