OK, sorry to help this off-topic go more off-topic, but.. wow, that's cool. But does it only cover computers in your house, or does it actually cover a laptop wherever you are? Funny story.. this guy, kind of reminds of me, well, he was in Europe and drove a rental car to visit his aunt in Switzerland, and stopped in the driveway, and got out of the car to meet my, um, this guy's relatives. And, well, the car had this smart-card thing instead of a key, and being a manual transmission, wasn't in "Park" and well, it was in neutral and brakes weren't on, and... after saying Hi to the relatives, I, or, um, this person realized the sound in the background was the car rolling backwards down the gentle slope into a creek! Oh, and there was an IBM Laptop in a bag at the back of the car, in the only part of the car that actually went underwater. The IBM people gladly repaired it for a considerable sum; not under the warranty, since that didn't cover "spills or other water damage."
